Announcing the cast for YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN

Thank you so much to every single person who auditioned for this wonderful musical.  We had an exceptional turnout and with a cast this small, that means turning away a lot of extremely talented people.  Casting is never easy, and your talents made it even more challenging.  We sincerely thank you for your time and efforts.

AUDITIONS for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revised)”

Auditions for YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN (REVISED)

Based on The Comic Strip “Peanuts”
by Charles M. Schulz

Book, Music and Lyrics
by Clark Gesner

Additional Dialogue by Michael Mayer
Additional Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa


Directed by JARET MORLAN and Musical Direction by CHRISTIAN DROLLINGER.

A new musical based on the characters created by cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in his comic strip, Peanuts. Though considered a “good man” by his friends, Charlie Brown can’t seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, nor his friend Lucy, her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.

Auditions: July 17th (1pm – 4pm) AND July 18th (6pm – 9pm)

Location: Iowa City Public Library, Meeting Room B

Performances: September 9-10 & 16-17 at 7:30pm September 10-11 & 17-18 at 2:00pm

Audition Process: Please prepare a one-minute song; an accompanist will be provided.  Auditions will also consist of cold readings from the script, but actors who have a monologue prepared are welcome to present it. If deemed necessary, callbacks will be held July 19 (6pm – 9pm)

Character Breakdown:
CHARLIE BROWN (Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to F): His main characteristics are either self-defeating stubbornness or admirable determined persistence to try his best against all odds. He can never win a ballgame but continues playing baseball; he can never fly a kite successfully but continues trying to do so. The show is a day in the life of Charlie Brown.

SNOOPY (Tenor/Baritone—middle C to high A): Snoopy is a more human-like dog. His character is that of a dog who pretends to be a person (or who sometimes forgets he is a dog).

LUCY VAN PELT (Mezzo/Alto Belt—G below mid C to high F): She has the persona of a bossy, crabby, manipulative and selfish girl who thrives on telling everyone something. She shows a need for assurance from either Schroeder or Charlie Brown that she is indeed pretty.

LINUS VAN PELT (Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to E): Though young, Linus is unusually smart and he acts as the show’s philosopher. Despite Linus’ intelligence and mature vocabulary, juvenile aspects of his character are also displayed; for example, Linus is almost always depicted holding his blue security blanket and often sucking his thumb.

SALLY BROWN (Soprano/Mezzo Belt—middle B flat to high A flat): Despite being portrayed as innocent and adorable, she is noticeably intelligent for her age and this precociousness contributes to the humor of the series.

SCHROEDER (High Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to high A flat): He is distinguished by his precocious skill at playing the toy piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven in particular.

The above descriptions are merely a guide.  Casting will be open to performers of all ages, genders, and races.  We are seeking funny, exciting, and energetic performers with vocal strength, but more importantly, strong actors with great comedic timing.  All other factors will not be part of the casting consideration.
