Sixty-five years ago the first Peanuts comic strip was published - Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang became a part of our lives! The characters in the comic strip are about six years old - None of our cast is actually six years old. And they don’t really look like Charles Schulz’ “Peanuts” cartoon characters. But this doesn’t seem to make that much difference once we are into the play, because what they are saying to each other is with the openness of that early childhood time, and the obvious fact is that they are all really quite fond of each other. You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, is ”an average day in the life of Charlie Brown.“ It’s a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

This program supported in part by grants from local agencies of the towns of Ayer, Dunstable, Groton, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley & Townsend, all supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.


You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown  is presented through special arrangement with Music theatre International (MTI), New York, NY.
