This classic musical, which depicts a day in the life of Charlie Brown and his friends from the beloved “Peanuts” comic strip, opened off-Broadway in March of 1967, playing for over 1500 performances and came to Broadway in a revised version in 1999.
The revival featured Kristin Chenoweth as Sally and Roger Bart as Snoopy, each winning a Tony for their performance.
Casting needs will include principal roles for four men, ranging in age from teens to the 50s, and two women, ranging in age from teens to the 50s, along with four men and four women for ensemble roles in the same age groupings.
Come with a prepared song and sheet music with two copies. Auditioners should also be prepared to read from the script and to learn a brief dance routine. Technicians are also needed and should come to auditions.
“You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” will play weekends from Friday, June 9, through Sunday, June 25.
