"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" closes BYU Pardoe season

Brigham Young University’s Department of Theatre and Media Arts will bring the lovable characters of the “Peanuts” comic strip to life in its production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” Wednesday, May 30, through Saturday, June 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pardoe Theatre.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, $7 for weeknights and $8 for weekend shows with a BYU or student ID. Dress rehearsals, which will be May 30 and 31, as well as matinees on June 7, 9, 14 and 16 at 2 p.m. are $6.

Tickets may be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office in the Harris Fine Arts Center at (801) 422-7664 or online at http://artstix.byu.edu. There will be no performances Sundays or Mondays.

The family musical, based on Charles Schulz’s comic strip characters and written by Clark Gesner, will walk audience members through a day in the life of one of Schulz’s best-known personalities, Charlie Brown.

"Happiness is" found in the charming quirks of each of the characters, from Linus' infatuation with his blanket to Snoopy's various imagined alter egos to Charlie Brown’s unrequited love for the little red-haired girl.

Throughout it all, Charlie Brown struggles to understand what makes someone a “good man,” until Lucy uncharacteristically tells him that’s exactly what he is.

In the BYU production, the part of Charlie Brown will be played by Tyler Wright, while Sally will be played by Megan Moffat, Lucy by Makenna Garner, Linus by Brandon Roach, Schroeder by Kevin Jordan and Snoopy by Hank Florence.

The musical is directed by George Nelson, with Ross Boothe as music director and Michelle Boothe as choreographer. Joyce Lim serves as the production stage manager, and Marel Stock and Adrienne Silva are co-dramaturges.

The scenic and lighting designer is Eric Fielding, costume, hair and makeup design is by Jessica Cowden and the sound designer and engineer is Russell Lloyd.

Audience members are welcome to join the cast and crew for a free lunch, stage tour and other fun activities. Enrollment is limited, so register early at http://performances.byu.edu for a choice of matinee dates on June 7, 9, 14 or 16.

Activities will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the north lobby of the Pardoe Theatre followed by a matinee performance at 2 p.m. For more information on this “Lunch ‘n Learn” activity, call the Fine Arts Ticket Office at (801) 422-7664.

Also, there will be a “Meet the Company” session following every performance.

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
