Gilman's Box Office
Happiness is….a Gilman spring musical!
The Upper School is proud to present the classic musical, "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown," as both a live performance and livestreamed event on May 6, 7, 8, and 9 (streaming performances are May 6 and May 8) in Alumni Auditorium.
A beloved show that brings the legendary and much-adored Peanuts characters to life, Charlie Brown takes place on “a day in the life” of the title character as he navigates the world as a child saddled with adult-sized problems: Will the object of his affection ever acknowledge his presence on the playground? Will his much-maligned little league team ever win a game? Will his dog ever stop behaving like a decorated World War I flying ace? And will his loving but frequently exasperating friends continue to stay by his side in the often elusive search for Happiness? (Of which “finding a pencil” and “tying your shoes for the very first time” are examples.) With both tender and show stopping songs by Clark Gesner (original music and lyrics) and Andrew Lippa (additional music and lyrics, 1999 Broadway revised edition), "You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown" is a show that packs a giant dose of joy and laughter that everyone can use right now.
Gilman’s production features a cast of six talented Upper School students, led by Charlie Niccolini ’21 as Charlie Brown, Ben Richardson ‘21 as Sally, Britton Ambrose ’22 as Lucy, Anay Agarwal ’23 as Linus, Curtis Lawson ’23 as Schroeder, and Brody Schrepfer ’23 as Snoopy. The show’s artistic team is comprised of Mr. John Rowell (Director), Ms. Elizabeth Sesler Beckman (Musical Director), Mr. Andrew Gordon (Choreographer), Mr. Peter Lander (Conductor), Mr. David Crandall (Lighting and Sound Designer), and Mr. Christopher Flint ’07 (Scenic Designer/Technical Director.)
