Schulz; Book, music, and lyrics by Clark Gesner; Additional dialogue by Michael Mayer and additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Directed by Christine McHugh

Synopsis: Charlie Brown and the entire Peanuts gang explore life’s great questions as they play baseball, struggle with homework, sing songs, swoon over their crushes, and celebrate the joy of friendship.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN
Please note we are seeking adult actors (21-45) to interpret these roles. In reference to the character descriptions below—most characters we encounter currently are on the binary and are written with he/him or she/her pronouns, and you will see that in the following descriptions. But however limiting the descriptions are, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible, and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We will also list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities. In addition, we will list disability when specific to a character but are otherwise seeking actors with disabilities as well as non-disabled actors for all roles. (Adopted from language originally created by Kevin Kantor and Emily Trarquin of Actors Theatre of Louisville).

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns or if there are any accommodations we can provide.

Charlie Brown: The central character of the musical, Charlie Brown is an everyman.  Despite being seen as a “loser” by his peers, he is optimistic and determined.  He is kind, gentle, and has a big heart.  Vocal Range: B-flat 2 to F4 (Baritone)

Sally Brown: Charlie Brown’s younger sister who is sweet and innocent but can be self-centered, skeptical, and absurdly intense.  She has a crush on Linus and often misinterprets his kindness. Vocal range B3 to A-flat 5 (Soprano) – THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST

Snoopy: Charlie Brown’s imaginative and lively pet beagle. Snoopy has a wild imagination, loves to daydream, and lives in his own fantasy world. Despite his quirks, he is very loyal to Charlie Brown. This can be a femme presenting, masc presenting, or non-binary actor. Physicality & dance experience helpful but not required. Vocal Range: Vocal range C3 to A4 (Tenor)

Lucy Van Pelt: A bossy, crabby, self-important girl who often bullies others, especially Charlie Brown and her brother Linus, in a misguided attempt to help.  Despite her tough exterior, she has moments of compassion, vulnerability, and insight. Vocal range G3 to F#5 (Mezzo)

Linus Van Pelt: Lucy’s younger brother, who is intelligent and philosophical despite his young age.  He is rarely seen without his security blanket.  He provides a lot of the show’s wisdom. Tap, soft shoe, or other dance experience is a plus. Vocal range B-flat 2 to E4 (Baritone)

Schroeder: A piano-playing prodigy who is obsessed with Beethoven.  He is the object of Lucy’s affection, although he usually ignores her advances to focus on his music. Piano experience is a plus but not required. Vocal range B-flat 2 to A-flat 4 (Tenor)
