You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

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. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

Show Dates are, April 16th – 19th, April 23rd -26th, and April 30th – May 3rd.

Once Upon a Mattress

Our story begins in a faraway kingdom long ago. Due to an unhappy curse, King Sextimus is unable to speak. Meanwhile, his terror-of-a-wife, Queen Aggravain, has taken over control of the kingdom. Most importantly, in an attempt to keep Prince Dauntless single, she has decreed that only the princess that can pass her test may marry her son. Further, no one else in the kingdom may marry until Prince Dauntless does. Lady Larken and Sir Harry are extremely disturbed by this fact since Lady Larken is now pregnant with Sir Harry’s baby. Luckily, Sir Harry finds an amazing princess, Winnifred the Woebegone. She instantly catches the attention of Prince Dauntless and is put to the Queen’s supposedly impassable sensitivity test. Mary Rodger’s classic Once Upon a Mattress is a delightful musical that is sure to become a fan favorite!

Show Dates are: July 9th – 12th, 16th – 19th, and 23rd – 26th

She Kills Monsters

She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans, a young woman grieving for her deceased sister. The Evans sisters never were especially close, but after Tilly’s death Agnes finds a notebook containing a game scenario created by her sister. She discovers that Tilly was well-known D&D player (Dungeons and Dragons), and that she was extremely passionate about the table-top role-playing game. In order to unlock more secrets about her mysterious young sibling, Agnes recruits a “dungeon master” named Chuck to help her understand and grieve Tilly. Chock-full of elves, warrior women, and ogres, She Kills Monsters is a surprisingly sweet tale of female empowerment, nerd/geek culture, friendship, loss, and acceptance.

Show Dates are: August 20th – 23rd, August 27th – 30th, and September 3rd – 6th
