CATS, The Community Arts Theater Society will present the delightful Broadway musical "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown". This version of "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown" won 2 Tony Awards and a Drama Desk Award for the 1998-1999 season. It features all of the classic musical numbers including "My New Philosophy" (which made Kristin Chenowith a star) and also wonderful Charlie Brown songs from "Beethoven Day" to "The Book Report" and "Happiness". Featuring favorite Charles M. Schulz characters from the famous Peanuts cartoon strips, CATS will present the musical with older teen & adult performers as was originally written.
The musical depicts an average day in the life of Charlie Brown, made up of memorable cartoon moments ranging from Charlie Brown’s wild optimism to utter despair. From the frustration of the baseball game, to the insecurity of Valentine’s day, to problems writing a book report, it is all depicted on stage by his human and non-human friends. The classic score opens with Charlie Brown’s uncertain but optimistic morning "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown", and happily ending in a hopeful starlit evening "Happiness". Show stoppers include Snoopy singing "Suppertime" and Lucy’s songs "Schroeder" & "The Doctor Is In". The whole Peanuts Gang is also featured in "The Book Report", "The Baseball Game" and "Beethoven Day".
