This musical brings Schulz's cherished PEANUTS characters to the stage with all of their loveable quirks and idiosyncrasies firmly in place. You will see Snoopy, the high-flying beagle with a dream; Sally, Charlie Brown's jump-roping, valentine collecting younger sister; the scheming Lucy, famous dispenser of psychoanalysis for a nickel; the Beethoven-loving, Lucy-deflecting Schroeder; Charlie Brown, that loveable round-headed kid unable to succeed at baseball, football, football-kicking or kite-flying; and Linus, the philosopher of the bunch, with an unnatural dependance on his security blanket.
