Network Theatre presents Clark Gesner's play based on Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. Directed by Michael Mayne.
An average day in the life of Charlie Brown, a boy "with what you call a failure face" is spent in the company of his dog Snoopy, who thinks he is the German ace known as The Red Baron; Linus, who forever needs his security blanket; Linus's sister Lucy, a battle‐axe in the making; and the pianist Schroeder, who loves Beethoven.
In this light-hearted musical full of feel-good and funny songs, they deal in their own special ways with such juvenile concerns as baseball, sibling rivalry, unrequited love, and school.
None of the cast is actually six years old and they don't really look like Charles Schulz' Peanuts cartoon characters. But they speak to each other with the openness of early childhood and it's obvious that they are really quite fond of each other.
