CVFT Summer 2016
YOU’RE A GOOD MAN CHARLIE BROWN (Revised)
Auditions May 23 & 24, 2016
Chaska Community Center Theater
1661 Park Ridge Drive
Artistic/Vocal Director: J.C. Lippold
FROM THE DIRECTOR:
The world of Peanuts, created by Minnesota native Charles Schulz, is one that offers a rich view of the struggle we all face to be happy, to find purpose, and to form relationships with the people around us. The musical adaptation of the Peanuts’ movie “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” has the power to touch audiences of all ages, in cast and in audience, by sharing a mixture of fun music and scene with smartly woven in life lessons about how to see one’s self positively amidst a world that sometimes seems like it’s against you. The 1999 Broadway Revival brought a needed dose of Broadway energy, jazz and excitement to the script and score and received massive acclaim for the added pieces of music by Tony Nominated Andrew Lippa and featured Broadway superstars Roger Bart, Kristen Chenoweth, Anthony Rapp and BD Wong.
May 23 & 24 – 6:30 to 9:00 p, Chaska Community Center Theater.
Call Backs the 26th if needed.
Prepare a 1 minute vocal selection. Bring sheet music as an accompanist will be provided. Your selection should come from a Broadway musical and speak to your strengths as an actor, singer and story teller! Samples for use are posted above, or bring your own.
