BRAINTREE, MA.– Archbishop Williams High School has announced theater students from grades 7-12 to star in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” opening November 18 and running two nights. Both shows will be at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the Archbishop Williams High School Auditorium. Tickets are $8 pre-sale at the School’s main office or can be purchased at the door for $10.

Archbishop Williams’ “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” stars Sophomore Sebastien Joseph (Randolph) as Charlie Brown. Junior Olivia McDonnell (Quincy) as Lucy.  Senior Hannah Cunniff (Quincy) stars as Sally and Freshman Justin Talluto (Weymouth) as Linus. Sophmore Michael Zaccari (Braintree) as Schroeder and Nicholas Mariani (Weymouth) as Snoopy round out the principal cast.

Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in “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. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed.

"We are very excited to be bringing the highly acclaimed and fun for the whole family play, “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” to Archbishop Williams this Fall,” said Mrs. Linda DeRosa-Coakley, Fine Arts Department Chair and also the production’s Director and Producer.  "We expect a great and entertaining show, that will be fun for all who attend and we hope to see you there!”

“You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown” is produced by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK MUSIC LIBRARY INC. , 560 Lexington Avenue New York, New York 1002
