Stages Theatre Company has announced they will re-open with the hit musical YOU'RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN. The production will run July 9, 2021 thru August 8, 2021 with performances held outdoors at Hopkins' Downtown Park. The musical comedy based on the Charles M. Schulz' Peanuts comic strip will be directed by Stages Theatre Company Artistic Director, Sandy Boren-Barrett.

"We're thrilled to be back and I can't think of a better place to set this much loved musical than outside, where it belongs" said Boren-Barrett. "It will be wonderful way to spend the afternoon or early evening with your family and friends, seeing such a fun musical, in this beautiful outdoor setting".

Featuring Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, Snoopy, and, Charlie Brown, the musical navigates their daily struggles with humor and charm and, in the end, learn what happiness is all about. Songs include "Happiness," "My New Philosophy," "Suppertime," and "My Blanket and Me."

YOU'RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN will be double cast, featuring an all-local cast of youth performers. Auditions for ages 10-18 will be held April 27-29. Additional creative team will be announced at a later date.
