The family musical, based on Charles Schulz’s "Peanuts" 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 Moffatt and Brighton Hertford, Lucy by Makenna Garner, Schroeder by Preston Sadlier, Linus by Brandon Roach 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.
