Charles Schultz’s beloved Peanuts comic strip comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” to be performed May 6-9 at Rosary High School, 901 N. Edgelawn Drive in Aurora. Join the whole Peanuts gang—Snoopy, Lucy, Schroeder, Sally, Linus, and of course, Charlie Brown himself—for one of six socially-distanced performances or tune in to the livestream.
The production team includes Megan Drahos, producer, vocal and orchestra director, and director Laura Biancalana, both teachers at Rosary High School.
The cast, crew, and pit orchestra includes more than 40 Rosary students. Music is provided by select members of the Rosary Symphony Orchestra, the Rosary Chamber Orchestra, and some local musicians.
Show dates are Thursday, May 6 at 6 p.m.; Friday, May 7 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, May 8 at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, May 9 at 2 p.m. Show tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students, seniors, and children; and $15 for a family livestream. Three different casts will be performing. If you would like to see a certain performer, check the cast list at rosaryhs.com/musical before choosing your tickets. Seating is limited due to safety protocols.
Adults (21+) are welcome to visit The Peanut Gallery before the show and during intermission on Friday and Saturday evenings. A Family Picnic with the characters ($10/$5) is planned for Saturday, May 8, at noon. Both events are fundraisers sponsored by the Rosary Fine Arts Boosters. Concessions will be available for all in the lobby.
