Happiness is great musical theatre! With charm, wit, and heart, You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown explores life through the eyes of Charlie Brown and his friends in the Peanuts gang. This revue of songs and vignettes, based on the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip, is the ideal family show.

Note from the Playwright: I had been interested in and drawn to the theatre arts since I was a preteen. Although, in my earlier years, I primarily focused on traditional acting and improvisational theatre. As my interests in theatre evolved, I started playwriting because I saw it as the most succinct and lively way to present my voice to the world, to add to the conversation in a language I had been cultivating for years – theatre.
I view my pieces as experimental conversation starters; I often enjoy tackling subject matter from a distorted lens to emphasize certain aspects of it. This manifests itself in absurdism, magical realism, Dadaism, existentialism, or purposeful oddness. I am particularly interested in issues of morality, family tragedy, the intangible powers of intense love or intense hatred, and more.
I have a deeply engrained love for theatre in its most traditional sense but my work blends that approach with a more contemporary and innovative stylization. In my works, this appears as dream sequences, absurdist depictions of the afterlife, abnormal memories, metatheatrical moments, extraordinary metamorphoses, and more.
The Herald Mail published an article today, July 17, highlighting the donation of our new theatre seats by Warehouse Cinemas. We are extremely grateful to them for making our auditorium comfortable and attractive to our patrons. See the article below.
We also want to thank the Hagerstown Rotary Club Foundation for the $2,000 grant to refinish the floors so the seats could be installed.
