Artful Living is proud to announce auditions for our 2014 Summer Musical, You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown!

You're a Good Man Charlie Brown tells the story of an average day in the life of the famous comic strip child hero, Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts Gang.

This classic musical follows our favorite Peanuts characters for 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.

Be a part of the Peanuts Gang: Charlie Brown, Linus, Schroeder, Lucy, Patty, Snoopy and all your other favorite characters.

We are casting THREE sets of Peanuts, (children, young adults and adults) who will each be featured in many scenes and songs! Both adults and children will have a great time! Show dates are August 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10 with rehearsals and performances held at HK Middle School.

Some special notes about auditions:
There is no need to schedule an appointment. The process should move quickly.

If multiple members of the same family who are different ages would like to audition, you may certainly come together. There is no need to come multiple times based on ages. Just let us know when you sign in.

Adults: Prepare a ballad which showcases your range, vocal strength and, preferably, the joy, fun, and childlike spirit that the show exhibits. Please bring marked sheet music. You may prepare a song from Charlie Brown or in the style of this musical. An accompanist will be provided.

Children: Be prepared to sing in small groups. There is no need to bring prepared songs. Please note children should be 8 or older.
