I wanted to Congratulate you on a rousing performance! I enjoyed it so much. Hysterium and Pseudolus were outstanding. Great job on this production of Funny Thing Happened....I'm very impressed - Elizabeth Spurgeon
The play was great, just seeing Krista in that character was worth the price of admission. She is a natural, and was so very comedic, really loved her character. - Kat
What a fantastic program I enjoyed yesterday
at The Marvelous Wonderettes!!! I am very
sorry for any of you who were unable to attend.
Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.
