The hit musical features your favorite Peanuts characters Charlie Brown, Lucy, Shroeder, Linus, Sally, and Snoopy. Written in 1967 by by Clark Gesne, the story returns you to your favorite Peanuts cartoons and reminds you of all the antics this crazy gang can get into. With songs like “Happiness,” “Beatoven Day” “My Blanket & Me,” and “My New Philosophy,” the show is stacked with singing, dancing, and comedy that is sure to make you nostalgic.
The show features a talented cast with Kyle Knight (’20) leading as Charlie Brown. He’s joined by Ben Manning (’22) as Shroeder, Michelle Sylvester (’21) as Sally, Emma Gannon (’20) as Lucy, Chris Manning (’22) as Linus and Julia Cross (’20) as Snoopy. In addition, at the Saturday matinee performance, Lucy will be played by Elise Falvey (’21), Sally will be played by Kat Sheridan (’21) and Erin Foley (’20) will play Snoopy. They are joined by a talented ensemble from all four grades as well.
