You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown

Based on the Comic Strip "Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz

Book, music and lyrics by Clark Gesner

Directed by Carla Gallun

The Redbud Players Community Theatre proudly announce a dinner theater production of Charles Schultz's "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."

The play is about an average day in the life of Charlie Brown and it really is just that, a day made up of the 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.

The dinner menu will be provided by the Capri Steak House of downtown Columbus.

Produced by the Red Bud Players at United Methodist Church, 222 S. Dickason Blvd. in Columbus.

Performances April 28 - May 7, 2000.

The Company

The cast is a representative sampling of the local area with actors from Columbus, Fall River, Beaver Dam, Sun Prairie and Waterloo. The play is being directed by Carla Gallun of Beaver Dam. This is Carla's second production with Redbud as she played the part of Corie in last fall's production of "Barefoot in the Park."

The cast is as follows:

None of the 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 the play begins, because what they say 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. That's what it's all about, after all.

Trish O'Neil of Columbus is the producer while Don Nelson of Columbus will be the stage manager.
