Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang explore life’s great questions as they play baseball, struggle with homework, swoon over crushes, and celebrate the joys of friendship. Based on the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip, this award-winning musical has delighted audiences of all ages with its charm, wit, and heart; inspiring several national tours, television productions, and a Broadway revival.

“The songs and monologues are spot on with the simplest ideas and thoughts that run through a child’s mind and are put beautifully to words and music,” says director Dan Murphy. “Simple things like flying a kite, writing a book report, or striking out at bat capture exactly how you felt in the moment, which is why this show has such staying power. Everyone can identify in some way.”

Book, music, and lyrics by Clark Gesner with additional dialogue by Michael Mayar and additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. The Broadway Rose production will be directed and choreographed by Dan Murphy with music direction from Darcy White. The creative team includes Sean O’Skea (Set Designer), Kristeen Willis (Lighting Designer), Janelle Sutton (Costume Designer), Kyra Sanford (Prop Designer), Brian Karl Moen (Sound Designer), and Jessica Junor (Production Stage Manager).

The cast comprises James Sharinghousen as Charlie Brown, Sarah Aldrich as Lucy, Kimo Camat as Snoopy, Michael Hammerstrom as Linus, Jason Hays as Schroeder, and Camille Trinka as Sally.
