“You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, the musical, has won the hearts of audiences for 50 years,” said Dr. Ronda Scarrow, assistant professor of theatre education, who is directing the production. “The animated characters — including Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Patty, Snoopy, Woodstock and the Little Red Haired Girl — come to life as they navigate the trials of life. From first love to the kite-eating tree to playing ball, this is the show for all ages.”
