'You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown'

In a universe of mean girls, oblivious "red-haired girls," kite-eating trees and lost baseball games, super-average Charlie Brown examines what it means to be told "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," 7 p.m. April 11 and 3 and 7 p.m. April 12, gymnasium, Lehigh Valley Christian High School, 330 Howertown Road, Catasauqua.

Enduring Lucy's (Bryanna Pye) fatuous personality and mercenary analysis ("The Doctor is in.") and his unrequited love of every man's never-seen "red-haired girl," Charlie Brown (Matt Weaver) seeks to find out if, as his friends say, he really is a good man.

His pet pooch, Snoopy (Hannah Wintermetz), revives his recurring fantasy of being a World War I flying ace, but this doesn't help Charlie Brown with his insecurities.

The roles include Sally (Emily Mallaber), Schroeder (Josh Brennan) and Linus (Elizabeth Ruppert).

Shaun Leisher directs the musical. Rebekah Ruth is music director.

Music and lyrics are by Clark Gesner, who also wrote the book for the musical.

Songs include "Beethoven Day," "My Blanket and Me" and "Happiness."

Tickets are expected to be available at the door.
