Charles Schultz’ beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day. They feature wild optimism and utter despair. The whole gang makes an appearance including bossy Lucy, Schroeder, Sally, Snoopy and Charlie Brown himself. This is a crowd-pleasing classic.
Tickets for adults are $18. Students under 18 and Seniors over 60 are $14. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pceshows.com ($1 convenience fee applies).

April Smith Golombek, first vice president for Plant City Entertainment said, “The show is a collection of scenes from classic Charlie Brown comics with favorite characters acting out some iconic scenes such as Charlie Brown flying a kite and getting advice from Lucy. You can also see Linus trying to leave his blanket or Lucy declaring her love for Schroeder. This show is kid friendly and heartwarming for adults.”
Chelsea Orvis directs You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown. Orvis said, “I could not have asked for a better cast and production team. Everyone has been incredible in helping put this show together. I hope our audiences enjoy the show.”
