Redmond High School will perform the musical “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” at 7 p.m. Oct. 26-27 and Nov. 2-3. Matinee performances take place at 2 p.m. Oct. 28 and Nov. 4.
It’s a show that appeals to all ages, said Pat Tellinghusen, director of the musical and Redmond drama coach.
“Students are having a blast playing children and adults will enjoy the deeper themes,” she said.
Sophomore Jeffrey Richards plays the title role, the child-like Charlie Brown, who looks for meaning in life, and junior Laynie Peugh plays his nemesis, Lucy Van Pelt, who points out Charlie Brown’s every flaw, Tellinghusen said, according to a press release.
“Cartoonist Charles Schultz strikes the perfect balance between childhood joy and adult existential angst,” she said.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for students and free for children under five and are available for purchase at redmondhs.seatyourself.biz.
