The Edmonds CC Music Department and the Black Box Theatre presents Charles Schulz’s “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” at 7:30 p.m. May 16-18, and 2 p.m. May 17-18, in the college’s Black Box Theatre, 20000 68th Ave. W, Lynnwood.

Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students, youth (17 and under), and seniors (65-plus).

Spend an evening with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally and, of course, Snoopy.

These memorable Peanuts characters will come to life in this Tony Award-winning Broadway musical revival—with book, music, and lyrics by Clark Gesner and additional dialogue, music, and lyrics by Michael Mayer and Andrew Lippa.

“The Peanuts comic strip is full of discovery, imagination, optimism, and hope,” said director Jennifer Matthews. “Who better to champion hope in today’s uncertain world than the optimist Charlie Brown?”

This musical is also full of witty and charming cartoon-like moments. Remember Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and his nefariously evil kite, and Linus with his blanket?

It also features memorable songs such as “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “My New Philosophy,” and “Happiness.”

“This story takes us on a journey and shows us that despite his failure and misgivings, Charlie Brown always rises above his calamity.” said Matthews, who also serves as the director of the Black Box Theatre. “He is not just a boy in a yellow shirt; Charlie Brown represents the enduring human spirit in us all.”

Advance reservations are recommended. Seating is limited and some shows are anticipated to sell out.
