Charlie BrownApr 10-11 | WV Middle School Presents: You're A Good Man Charlie Brown! |
March 26, 2015 - The Warwick Valley Middle School Drama Club will present "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown" on Fri., Apr. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Apr. 11 at 1 p.m. & 7:30 p.m. at the Theatre at Warwick Valley High School. The production is under the direction of Joan Rueckert, produced by Karen Reiber, with musical direction by Brian Clark. Tickets are $8 per person and are available at the door. Based on the comic strip “Peanuts” by Charles M. Schultz, the show brings Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Schroeder and friends to life in a musical that’s fun for all ages and filled with uplifting songs performed by a live pit orchestra and big dance productions. The show portrays an average day in the life of Charlie Brown - from Valentine's Day to Baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair. The events are all strung together on a string of a single day, from a bright uncertain morning to a hopeful starlit evening.

In March 7, 1967, the musical premiered off-Broadway at Theatre 80 in the East Village, featuring Gary Burghoff as Charlie Brown, Skip Hinnant as Schroeder, Reva Rose as Lucy, Bob Balaban as Linus, Karen Johnson as Patty (an early Peanuts character not to be confused with Peppermint Patty), and Bill Hinnant as Snoopy.[6][7] Joseph Hardy directed and choreographer Patricia Birch was billed as "Assistant to the Director". Joe Raposo, later of Sesame Street fame, was billed as "Music Director" and composer of incidental music for the show.
