PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a fun, family-oriented musical with the action taking place in “an average day in the life of Charlie Brown.” It is really just that, 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.

All ages will enjoy this musical based on the comic strip “PEANUTS” by Charles M. Schulz. Charlie Brown and his friends Lucy, Schroeder, Linus, Patty and Snoopy will delight you with songs such as Little Known Facts, Suppertime, and Happiness. The cast of this production is comprised of veteran stage actors accompanied by a live “on stage” band. Drama for the production is under the direction of Christian Mayer, well known for his directorial successes at other venues in Forsyth County. Music for the production will be under the direction of Alisa Kay Sloan, president of Medallion Performing Arts Center.

For the matinees on October 30 & 31, school age children (and others “young at heart”) are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the show, and afterwards they can expect some “treats” from the cast.

Ticket prices:

$15.00/adults
$11.00/senior adults (over 60)
$7.00/students

For tickets call the Cumming Playhouse Box Office, 770-781-9178

"The same directorial team that brought 'Brigadoon' to Forsyth County"
'Brigadoon' was a Cumming Attractions Theatre Company production, not an MPAC production. It's a misnomer placing those credits in this review. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
So why give it its own review with a zero rating? by Okely Dokely
I'm assuming you weren't aware that you could comment on reviews or give NRs. In the future, since what you said wasn't a review, it's best to put those things as comments.
jegoldston by mark
i know nothing about this theater, but sbowron said it was the same directors, not the same producers. what gives with the mightier than thou attitude?
by cutiepie
Where does it say that Brigadoon was a MPAC production? They said it was the same directors. Somebody is either reading too much into something, has too much time on their hands, or is very touchy. By the way jgoldston is Jackie Goldston The owner and artistic director of Cumming Attractions Theatre Company. Please in the future either make a comment or put a NR rating.
clarify by jegoldston
Hello everyone. Thought I'd clarify. 1st of all, I don't frequent the site enough to know to 'comment' on another area. I visited the site [way] after the show closed and didn't put any rating down, b/c i didn't see the show. Not b/c I didn't want to, but b/c I don't have time to see many other shows...as a matter of fact, I was asked to be in the show and had to turn it down b/c of scheduling conflicts.
Additionally, we're not in any 'war,' cutiepie, so no need to spread malicious gossip. I think Medallion has a great thing going AND Chris &Shannon Mayer are two of my best friends. Yes, I am Jackie Goldston, I'm not posting anonymously, and I am the founder of CATCo. I simply thought that the implied comments sounded a bit presumptuous & wanted to clear it, that's all - No war, nothing meant by the '0' that showed up. Sorry to disappoint. Oh, and this is only the 3rd or 4th time I've ever visited the reviews, and I definitely do not have too much time on my hands!

You're a Good Time, Charlie Brown!

Take an average guy, fill him with insecurities, give him a dog with a Walter Mitty complex, and you have an American classic. "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" is taken right from the comic strip and put on the stage for us to have a lifesize look into life and its foibles.

Christian Mayer (Director) and Alisa Kay Sloan (Music Director) are the same directoral team that brought "Brigadoon" to Forsyth County a couple of years ago. They've done it again in combining solid acting and musical theater into a well-balanced cast who bring cartoon characters to life. The joint efforts of Medallion Performing Arts Corporation (MPAC) and Off-Broadway Productions chose the newly-renovated Cumming Playhouse for their venue. This historical schoolhouse adds its own classical charm to the Peanuts Gang as they sing about their "Book Report on Peter Rabbit."

Bring the kids for the laughs, and yourself for the memories, and before you know it, you'll be dancing and singing "Suppertime" in the aisles along with Snoopy and the Gang. One thing's for certain - Charlie Brown's a good time! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
