From the trials of first loves and little league championships to battles with book reports and kite-eating trees, You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a delightfully quirky and infectious musical based on Charles M. Schulz's classic comic strip.  Spend a day in the life of the inept but ever-hopeful Charlie Brown as he searches for what it means to be a good person, finding unexpected answers from the beloved childhood gang—bossy Lucy ("The Doctor is In"), brainy Linus ("My Blanket and Me"), Beethoven super-fan Schroeder, sister Sally, savvy beagle Snoopy and the elusive little red-haired girl.  The 1999 Tony Award-winning Broadway revival featured new music and lyrics by award-winning composer Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family).
