"Happiness is…" LIVE THEATRE IN THE PARK! 

Based on The Comic Strip “Peanuts” by Charles M. Schulz
Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner
Additional Dialogue by Michael Mayer
Additional Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Directed by Sandy Boren-Barrett

Stages Theatre Company and the whole Peanuts gang is in Hopkins’ Downtown Park this summer for a live musical production filled with the heartfelt charm only Charlie Brown can deliver.

Meet us in the park as Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate life’s ups and downs through song, dance, and clever vignettes. Based on the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip, this delightfully witty musical is guaranteed to engage audiences of all ages. After all, no one contemplates Life’s biggest questions while playing baseball, grappling with homework, and falling for first crushes quite like Charlie Brown. 

In the end, the biggest celebration is found in the joy of friendship and knowing that Happiness is…what we make of it!

YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC. www.concordtheatricals.com

  • Musical

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together in this timeless, beautiful musical. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

  • Comedy

Lady Happy, a wealthy heiress, rejects societal pressure to take a husband by building a cloistered utopia for unmarried women. The ladies are quite pleased to live free from the threat of marriage. The lords are quite perturbed to be kept out of the fun. And poor Madam Mediator has her hands full trying to keep the estate solvent. Will Lady Happy’s “principles of pleasure” be able to withstand the scrutiny of Princess Principle or the rising cost of flowers? 

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, didn’t have enough money to try. 

This is a rollicking new adaptation by Heather Meyer, creator of Women’s History Month: The Historical Comedybration (with fabulous prizes) and numerous past Fringe shows. The original 1668 play was written by “Mad Madge” aka Margaret Cavendish, the Duchess of Newcastle (or as she called herself: “the thrice noble, illustrious, and excellent princess, the duchess of Newcastle, Margaret Cavendish”), gets a 21st century facelift for a frothy, face-paced, feminist romp.

"Hearken to my speech, boy -- all Golden-Folk be as we ere long. Once we shone brightly, gliding through the leaves of the forest and the brush of the desert, plain to eye only a flurry of green and gold, green and gold. One day now and one day soon, we all fade to gray."

A gray-man, skin dirt-gray, sets out into the desert to find a golden maiden, stopping for long palavers with a pale man along his way. Tale of some colorful folk, say I, with tongues of gold, whatever their skins may be.

Discover a darkly fantastic world in this story by horror author phillip andrew bennett low, with an original soundtrack by J Roth of Walking Boxes Productions!

WARNING: contains gunshots and graphic descriptions of violence, as well as some implication of sexual assault.

PRAISE FOR PHILLIP ANDREW BENNETT LOW

“...low has a hell of an ear for language. Those are some downright beautiful sentences...the guy gives good aural.”
- Glen Weldon, WASHINGTON CITY PAPER

“...dark and passionate...thought-provoking theater...”
- Daniel Gerzina, TIME OUT CHICAGO
