Good grief!  A runaway hit on Broadway – twice! – this loveable ode to Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts gang is once again enjoying a revival.  Follow the antics of good old Charlie Brown as he spends a day pondering the meaning of life. In between kite-flying escapades, baseball games and failed attempts to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, he finds solace and friendship with Linus, his sister Sally, nemesis Lucy, musical genius Schroeder – and, of course, man’s best friend, Snoopy!  Fun for the whole family, set to a singable score that was nominated for the Grammy for Best Musical Show Album – twice!

Appropriate for ages 6 and up.

When you slip it on, it feels like a favourite sweater, that pure nostalgia that you're bathed in. And it has something to say to today's audiences because deft social commentary is what made Schulz's comic strips so endearing…
