PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts presents You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, a Weston Young Company production, at Putney Central School on Thursday, July 6, at 4:00 pm.

“The ability to invite community members to see a professional-level production from Weston in our community gets to the heart of community partnerships that Next Stage is striving for,” Keith Marks, executive director of Next Stage Arts, said in a news release about this free community presentation.

Based on the iconic comic strip, “Peanuts,” by the late Charles M. Schulz, the book, lyrics, and music were written by Clark Gesner, with additional dialogue by Michael Mayer, and additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa.

The performance is free; however, ticket reservations are required.

“With charm, wit, and heart, You're a Good Man Charlie Brown follows the life of America's most lovable loser,” states the news release. “Along with Snoopy and other friends from the Peanuts gang, Charlie Brown navigates the ups and downs of growing up, playing football, flying a kite, and being friends with just about the best dog there is.”

Full of memorable songs and iconic moments from the “Peanuts” comic strip, this charming show is sure to delight audiences of all ages, say organizers.
