LANSING, Mich. — The timeless humor and insight into the human condition from Charles Schultz is what keeps Peanuts in our daily funny papers. This all ages musical offers a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the holiday weekend the whole family will enjoy. Familiar faces to the Lansing theatre scene take on six iconic characters from the Peanuts universe to perform the beloved musical You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Bob Purosky returns to the director’s chair after having been at the helm of the widely successful Spamalot from two years ago and brings with him Jeff English and Amanda Tollstam as music director and choreographer respectively.

Everyone’s favorite ‘blockhead’ played by Brian Farnham is joined by Tricia Rogers as Lucy, Taren Going as Sally, Robert Mueller in the role of Schroeder, Braden Cooley plays Linus, and
Taren Going as Sally, Robert Mueller in the role of Schroeder, Braden Cooley plays Linus, and Christopher Verhil rounds out the gang as Snoopy.

Audiences familiar with the original 1967 production will be treated to a blend of original material and expanded music and the swapping of Patty for Sally’s character in our presentation of the 1998 Broadway revival. Join us for some wholesome, family fun this Thanksgiving as Charlie Brown and friends discover what Happiness is.
