Honesdale, Pennsylvania - This May, welcome Snoopy, Linus, Charlie Brown and all the Peanuts gang back to the Honesdale High School Performing Arts Center with "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." Written by Clark Gesner, the show is based on the characters of Charles M. Schulz.

The Broadway style production explores what it means to be a good person, prompted by affirmations from Charlie Brown’s friends. These compliments set Charlie Brown on a journey of self-discovery as the audience follows him and his friends through a day of adventure and trials.
The story of the musical is told through a series of vignettes that act as the four-panel format used by the original cartoon strip “Peanuts.” With charm, wit, and heart, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown explores life through the eyes of the Peanuts gang.
Musical numbers include “My Blanket and Me,” “The Kite,” “The Baseball Game,” “Little Known Facts,” “Suppertime,” and “Happiness.
The play spans the months between Valentine’s Day and Beethoven Day, following the characters in their optimism and utter despair. You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic for all age groups.
