The Production Team for “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” announces auditions to be held Monday, December 12 and Tuesday, December 13.
AUDITION REGISTRATION HERE
The cast of characters is below. Please take some time to familiarize yourselves with the entire Peanuts gang. These iconic characters have distinct personalities and relationships with each other. They are fun to play, and it will be important to bring them to life in a way that honors the history of their story.
While these characters are children, they are meant to be played by adults. Children have a certain way of seeing the world, and part of the fun and challenge of this show is to find adults that can convey that same childlike wonder with humor and sensitivity.
Auditions are open to anyone of any age that can be believable as an adult playing a child. Meaning, the final cast needs to be cohesive in look and appearance as well as chemistry and temperament.
Auditioners are asked to familiarize themselves with the character they most prefer, as well as the song listed below for that character. Portions of the songs below (to be covered at auditions) will be reviewed and performed for the audition. We will not have enough time to thoroughly acquaint/teach each auditioner their chosen song, so prior preparation will be important! Make sure you know the song well all the way through. The 1999 Cast recording is a good version to listen to (Anthony Rapp, Kristen Chenoweth).
The casting committee plans to finalize casting in one audition day (Monday) and one callback day (Tuesday). Please make every effort to attend Monday auditions starting at 6 pm. A callback list will be posted Monday by midnight. Callbacks will be held Tuesday beginning at 7 pm.
Anyone absolutely unable to attend auditions Monday night will be allowed to audition Tuesday from 6 to 6:45 pm by appointment only.
Should you wish to schedule Tuesday audition, please email Director Mandy Maloney @ email@example.com.
