What do Charlie Brown, popcorn and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival all have in common? The “Peanuts Gallery” at the Avon Theatre! During the month of May, we’re offering you a new way to experience our production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. For $29 you can sit in our Peanuts Gallery and enjoy Charlie Brown from the balcony of the Avon with a bag of popcorn and a few good friends!* Simply log in to our website with promotion code 42777 to take advantage of this limited-time offer.
We’ve all seen Charles Schulz’s classic comic strip Peanuts in the Sunday funnies; now you can watch as Charlie Brown and his friends jump off the pages of the newspaper and onto the stage! Helmed by director and choreographer Donna Feore, this production of Charlie Brown will take the Peanuts images and characters we know and love and translate them for a modern audience.
I was fortunate enough to get a sneak preview of Michael Gianfrancesco’s set design and Dana Osborne’s costume design; they were beyond fun! The colours will knock you out and the costumes modernize the production while staying true to the original feel of each character. Just picture Charlie Brown dressed in “Euro-boy” attire … so cute!
Here’s our spin on some well-known Peanuts images. These awesome set pieces will be on stage this season in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!
