Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN at Buck Creek Players
Experience the Buck Creek Players Collection of Favorites as we continue our 43rd season of quality theater with the new, revised Broadway production of the high-energy musical, YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in costume below!
With book, music, and lyrics by Clark M. Gesner, this all new production features new music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and additional dialogue by Michael Mayer. The result is a musical family entertainment that could only have sprung from the mind of Charles M. Schulz.
"How can anything go wrong on a day like this?" asks Charlie Brown (D. Scott Robinson) as the curtain goes up. YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN answers this question and many more, as Lucy (Stacia Ann Hulen), Linus (Jacob Peterman), Sally (Jessica Bartley), Schroeder (Scott A. Fleshood), Snoopy (Jonathan D. Krouse) and Woodstock (Emma Wilson) join the fun of "a day in the life of Charlie Brown." Full of music, humor, and insight, the stage musical tackLes Childhood's memorable moments that made Schulz's Peanuts characters a part of all our lives.Will this be the day that Charlie Brown actually flies his kite? Can Linus give up his blanket? Will Schroeder give in to Lucy's romantic advances? All this while Snoopy ponders the meaning of life from the roof of his doghouse.
