HAPPINESS IS…Charlie Brown and the "Peanuts" gang in a production featuring young stars of Broadway!
press sneak peek event
The York Theatre Company, in association with Van Dean, Tony Heyes/Mia Moravis, Jose-Manuel Perez/Sister Productions and Jamie deRoy bring the familiar characters of the "Peanuts" gang to life on stage in an exciting new production featuring young stars of Broadway. This youthful and vibrant cast offers an authenticity only possible from performers close in age to the characters they are portraying.
Spend a couple of days in the lives of Charlie Brown and his pint-sized philosopher friends - from bright, uncertain morning to starlit, hopeful evening - and all of the lonely brown-bag lunches, kite flying failures, book reports, glee club rehearsals, and suppertimes in between. Audiences of all ages will learn that "Happiness is" the simple joys of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
The seven-member “Peanuts” gang will feature Joshua Colley (Elf,The Musical) as Charlie Brown, Gregory Diaz (School of Rock at the White House) as Schroeder, Aidan Gemme (Finding Neverland) as Snoopy, Milly Shapiro (Matilda) as Sally, Mavis Simpson-Ernst (Evita) as Lucy, and Jeremy T. Villas (Kinky Boots) as Linus. Graydon Peter Yosowitz (The Odyssey) will perform the role of Charlie Brown from June 1-7.
