Stages’You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
Now at the Ross School Court Theater

Join Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and the whole Peanuts Gang when Stages, A Children’s Theatre Workshop, Inc., presents Clark Gesner’s Broadway musical hit, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown at the Ross School Court Theater in East Hampton. This family show is based on the popular comic strip “Peanuts,” created by Charles M. Schulz. With music, lyrics and a book by Clark Gesner, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” was revived on Broadway in 1999 to critical acclaim and 2 Tony Awards.

The Stages cast, directed by Helene Leonard, consists of over thirty young actors ages 9 to 17 headed by Brandon Murtagh as Charlie Brown and Liz Oldak As Lucy. Brandon and Liz most recently starred in Stages Beauty and the Beast. Amanda Jones on piano and James Benard on drums and bass provide the musical accompaniment.

Stages, A Children’s Theatre Workshop, Inc., a not-for-profit children’s theater company is currently in its fifteenth season on the East End. It was co-founded in 1994 by Gene Stilwell and Helene Leonard, following the lead of her father, Jerry Leonard. He had a well-known children’s theater company in Cleveland in the 1950's to the 1980's. Stages performs five full-scale musicals a year, seventy-five to date, the products of its after-school workshops and theatrical summer camp. Stages is currently in its fourth generation of cast members (ages 8 to 19), totaling somewhere over one thousand participants over the years. It is no doubt in its fourth generation of audience members as well. Thousands of children have been influenced in some way by a Stages live theater production.

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is being performed by Stages to kick off its fifteenth season of year round productions and workshops in the Hamptons. Future productions include the popular Frankenstein Follies, a Halloween tradition at the Bay Street Theatre, as well as a holiday production in December.

You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown,
a theatrical treat for all ages, will be performed on
Friday, August 28th at 7:00 PM,
Saturday, August 29th at 7:00 PM, and
Sunday, August 30th at 3:00 PM.

Tickets are just $15 and can be reserved by calling Stages at (631) 329-1420.
