‘Peanuts’ gang on stage at LPCA

The Lake Placid Center for the Arts announces its Summer Musical Theatre Camp performance “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” based on the Comic Strip “Peanuts” by Charles M. Schulz.

The book, music and lyrics are by Clark Gesner with additional dialogue by Michael Mayer, and additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Performances will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 and Friday, Aug. 16 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

All tickets are $10.

Matt Sorensen is directing the production, with music direction by Kimberly Weems, choreography by Paula Kay Morelan and production design by Jon Donk.

A program note says that the time of the action is “an average day in the life of Charlie Brown.”

It really is just that, a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

The cast consists of 10 talented area student performers from Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid: Autumn Buerkett, Jadalena Bujold, Lucky Cerruti, Annachristi Cordes, Noah Cordes, Emily DeLancett, Will Gray, Danielle LaMere, Jack Martin, and Sasha Van Cott.
