WNMTC to Open "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"

Happiness is two kinds of ice cream, sharing a secret...or reliving the sweet innocence of youth with Charlie Brown and Snoopy. The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company will open their 2007 season with the celebrated characters of Charles Schultz's comic strip as they present the classic musical "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" in eight weekend performances, March 30-April 8.

Presented in its award-winning Broadway revival version, the musical snapshots Schultz at his best: Schroeder and Lucy at the piano, Charlie Brown and Lucy at the psychiatry booth, Linus with his blanket, Snoopy with his supper dish, and the whole gang at the baseball game. The characters live the moments of a child's life waffling from wild optimism to utter despair, from a bright, uncertain morning to a hopeful starlit evening.

Hilarious comic sequences are animated by high-energy dance routines, creating non-stop entertainment for adults and children alike.

"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," typically performed by young adults dressed as children, stars Adam Whitney as Charlie Brown. Caitlin Papp plays Lucy, Christopher Willson is Schroeder, A. J. Hamann is Linus, Therese Curatolo is Sally Brown, and Marcus Quiroga is Snoopy. The cast is rounded out with an ensemble of singers and dancers, including Alice Sady as Woodstock, and accompanied by a professional ensemble of musicians, led by Linda Hardy on the piano.

Stephanie Arrigotti produces and directs, and Gina Kaskie-Davis is the choreographer.

The show will be presented in the Black Box Theater at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 West King Street. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday matinees are at 2:00 p.m. Advance reservations are strongly recommended as seating is limited and some shows are almost sold out. Tickets cost $18 for general admission, $16 for students and seniors, and $14 for youth 17 and under.

"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" is the first musical of WNMTC's 2007 Spotlight on Broadway season, which includes "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in May and "Guys and Dolls" in November. Season ticket-holders receive discounts to the shows as well as preferred seating.
