2015 – You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown

ARC Theatre produced You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown at the Our Lady of Mercy College, Heidelberg on the 22nd and 28th of February. This was a show for anyone from 2 to 102!

YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN spans an average day in the life of six young friends, both human and non-human. It is a day observed through little moments, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair; all told through the eyes of children.

Based on Charles Schulz beloved Peanuts comic strip and featuring a memorable score including songs such as My New Philosophy and Happiness, YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN was an unforgettable theatre experience.

  • Sunday 22nd February: 11am and 5pm; Saturday 28th February: 2pm and 7:30pm.
  • You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was performed at the Our Lady of Mercy College Performing Arts Centre, Heidelberg.
