Charlie Brown Coming To CMU
Shows for public and for area school kids
Charlie Brown and all his friends will soon pay a visit to Central Methodist University’s
Little Theatre to entertain the public and numerous area school students, too.
The play You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is open to the public on Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening (Nov. 12), and Sunday afternoon (Nov. 13). The afternoon performances are at 1:30 and the evening performance begins at 7:30. Ticket prices are $8 for general admission, $5 for CMU faculty and staff, and free for CMU students with their identifications.
Additional performances exclusively for area school students will take place Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 9-11, according to Director Dr. Mark Kelty, CMU professor of theatre.
In You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, all the characters find themselves dealing with some kind of angst. Charlie feels like a failure because he isn’t perfect even though his friends tell him he’s a good man.
Charlie loves the little red-haired girl but lacks the courage to talk to her. Lucy loves Schroeder, but he only loves his music. Linus loves only his blanket. Their dog Snoopy has a battle with the legendary Red Baron, but loses the fight--this time.
Everything eventually turns out well, if not perfectly, for all the characters. Even Charlie Brown, who discovers the little red-haired girl chews on her pencil and so isn’t perfect either, comes to realize that he is a pretty good guy after all.
