08-19 through 08-20 - BDACT: Auditions for “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” classic musical. August 19 & 20 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm Callback August 21 starting at 6:30 pm SHOW DATES: October 17, 19, 20, 25, 26 & 27 at 7:30 pm; October 21 & 28 at 2:00 pm Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. Charlie Brown vocal range of Bb to F His main characteristics are either self-defeating stubbornness or admirable determined persistence to try his best against all odds. He can never win a ballgame but continues playing baseball; he can never fly a kite successfully but continues trying to do so. The show is a day in the life of Charlie Brown. Lucy Van Pelt vocal range of G to F She has the persona of a bossy, crabby, manipulative and selfish girl who thrives on telling everyone something. She shows a need for assurance from either Schroeder or Charlie Brown that she is indeed pretty. Snoopy vocal range of C to A Snoopy is a more human-like dog. His character is that of a dog who pretends to be a person (or who sometimes forgets he is a dog). Schroeder vocal range of Bb to Ab He is distinguished by his precocious skill at playing the toy piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven in particular. Linus Van Pelt vocal range of Bb to E Though young, Linus is unusually smart and he acts as the show’s philosopher. Despite Linus’ intelligence and mature vocabulary, juvenile aspects of his character are also displayed; for example, Linus is almost always depicted holding his blue security blanket and often sucking his thumb. Sally Brown vocal range of B to Bb Despite being portrayed as innocent and adorable, she is noticeably intelligent for her age and this precociousness contributes to the humor of the series.
