"This production is based on a concert that was presented at Feinstein's/54 Below by Van Dean of Broadway Records and Jennifer Tepper," said James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director at The York Theatre Company. "The York Theatre Company, along with our associate producers, has put together a cast of talented young performers, ages 9-13, for this exciting new production which willcombine the simplicity of the original 1967 Off-Broadway version with additions from the 1999 Broadway revival."

Clark Gesner had a long association with The York Theatre Company, including the mainstage production of his musical The Jello is Always Red in 1998, which Morgan directed. Charlie Brown's Director Michael Unger had the pleasure of directing Clark in a production of Molière's School for Wives at Vermont's Weston Playhouse. "He was the most charming, eternally youthful man you could ever hope to meet," stated Unger. "Clark was a mix of the finest traits of all the show's characters. This delightful classic is told through fresh, youthful eyes and voices-with an authenticity only possible from performers close in age to the characters they are portraying."

The creative team for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown includes Brian Prather (sets), Grier Coleman, (costumes), Graham Kindred (lights), and Matsy Stinson (props). The Production Stage Manager is T.J. Kearney. Casting is by Nora Brennan Casting.
