The Winter Park Playhouse production features a cast of talented new and returning adult professional actors playing the beloved Peanuts gang: Brandon Roberts as Linus Van Pelt, Jeffrey Correia as Snoopy, Molly Anne Ross as Sally Brown, Shawn Kilgore as Charlie Brown, Natalie Cordone as Lucy Van Pelt, and Shonn McCloud as Schroeder.
Artistic Director Roy Alan will direct and choreograph the production and resident Playhouse Music director Christopher Leavy will music direct the piece.

You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a heartwarming and funny look at life through the eyes and wisdom of the iconic Charles M. Schulz. From bright uncertain mornings to hopeful starlit evenings, blockhead Charlie Brown, bossy Lucy, prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, blanket-toting Linus and loveable Snoopy all show us the lessons we learn through our everyday life before finally coming to realize what truly makes us happy!
Talkin' Broadway says "Watching You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is like running into your old gang. You know, the kids you haven't seen in years... You laugh, you love... Like a warm blanket just right for the holidays..."
