  You're a Good Man Charlie Brown tells the story of an average day in the life of the famous comic strip child hero, Charlie Brown. Most of the characters are 5-6 years old. The audience is introduced to the whole Peanuts gang: Patty, Shroeder, Lucy, Linus, Pig Pen, Marcie, Sally, Violet, Charlie Brown and Snoopy. All of the characters share their observations, largely negative, of Charlie Brown. As the play progresses, the relationships of the Peanuts characters to one another are further expanded. Lucy is infatuated with Schroeder and takes great pleasure in tormenting Charlie Brown. Linus loves his blanket. Snoopy lives in his rich imagination. Charlie Brown is in love with a mysterious little, redheaded girl. The show ends with each character listing things that for him or her equal happiness. Finally, Lucy ends up telling Charlie Brown what a good man he is leaving a smiling, happy Charlie Brown alone on stage.
  Fun for the whole family with lots of laughs and cheering for the underdog, Charlie Brown.
