St John Theatre announces auditions for its fall production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. August 12 and 13, 2014, 7:00PM nightly at St John Theatre, 115 West 4th Street, Reserve, La. The show will be directed by Lance S. Ural. The director will be looking for:

  • The director will add 4 additional comic strip characters.

An accompanist will be on hand to teach and play songs from the show.  Auditions will include dancing.

This production of YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN was re-imagined by its creative team and helped make a star of Kristin Chenoweth when it was revised on Broadway in 1999. The Broadway director Michael Mayer visited with Charles M. Schulz to get his blessing on the revision. Mr. Schulz gave Mayer access to his cartoons and the result was thorough. Seventeen of the original show’s scenes have been deleted and 21 new ones have been added. Additionally, composer Andrew Lippa (THE WILD PARTY) has revised seven of the original 14 songs with new vocal and dance arrangements and has written two NEW songs as well as reconceiving the beloved opening number! This truly is a brand new look at the wildly popular show and it will be PEANUTS entertainment the whole family can enjoy!

Proposed show dates: November 6 7 8 9, 2014.
