You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown
When: 7th – 15th April
Where: Cranbourne Community Theatre
What: A Musical theatre event with a live orchestra. The time of the action for You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is “an average day in the life of Charlie Brown”. It really is just that, a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair. These are all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening. Joining all these moments together are some beautiful and uplifting songs. An energetic and colourful production that will entertain the whole family!!
Who should attend:
Families, Lovers of Peanuts, Drama teachers, Theatre Lovers

The team at Melbourne Easter Show want to bring all the experiences of the show.
