Hickory – Carolina Broadway Theatre Company (CBTC) is proud to present the classic Off-Broadway musical You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown this weekend at The Belk Centrum Theatre on Lenoir-Rhyne University’s campus.
You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a delightfully infectious musical that has charmed audiences for close to 50 years. From the trials of first loves and little league championships to battles with book reports and kite-eating trees, audiences are invited to spend a day in the life of the inept but ever-hopeful Charlie Brown as he searches for what it means to be a good person, finding unexpected answers from his friends Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, and Snoopy.
This is the inaugural production by the students of theHUB@CBTC. TheHUB is a Performing Arts homeschool co-op for Middle and High School students. In addition to their homeschool curriculum, these students gather for performing arts electives, such as Shakespeare, Music Theory, and Songwriting.
This production will be competing for the Blumey Awards to be awarded in May at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte. The mission of the Blumeys is recognize, reward and encourage talent and achievement in musical theater among high school students in the greater Charlotte area. The Blumey Awards highlight the importance of musical theater and arts education.
This production is supported by the United Arts Council of Catawba County through the North Carolina Arts Council, with funding from the State of North Carolina.
Performance dates and show times: Friday, March 16 at 7pm and Saturday March 17 at 7pm.
