On April 22, the Village Theatre located at 303 Front Street North in Issaquah will be holding opening night for a performance called, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

The musical comedy will run until May 22, and is based on the comic strip, “Peanuts,” by Charles M. Schultz. Audience members have the opportunity to explore a day in the life of Charlie Brown as he shifts from optimism to despair.

The performance is a reminder that truth can sometimes hurt, and the cast will show attendees how positivity and sunlight can sometimes be the best medicine.

“I hope this production allows you to reconnect with that childlike optimism and steadfastness that was there before your happiness was influenced by the outside world,” said Jimmy Shields, Director. “May it remind you of dreams that may have taken a back seat to responsibilities.”

For You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Rafael Molina will play Charlie Brown. Sally Brown will be played by Arika Matoba, and Jason Weitkamp will play Snoopy.

Ticket pricing will be $35-86 for adults, $35-81 for seniors ages 65 and up, and $28-71 for youth ages 18 and below.

The performance on May 7 at 1:00 p.m. will have an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter, and the performance on May 12 at 1:00 p.m. will be a captioned performance.

Masks will be required, and all attendees must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, or a negative COVID-19 test.
