Facetime Theatre will be performing “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” January 16-18, 2014, in the Blackbox Theatre of the Kaleidoscope Performing Arts Center at Ursinus College in Collegeville.

“YAGMCB” is a timeless musical comedy featuring your favorite characters from the Peanuts comic strip -- Snoopy the flying ace, Lucy the fussbudget, Linus the philosopher, Schroeder the virtuoso, little sister Sally and of course the coach himself, Charlie Brown.

Known for its outstanding summer stage performances in the Lenfest Theatre, Facetime is launching its first regular season with this beloved classic about the trials and tribulations of that round-headed kid, Charlie Brown. Everyone can relate to Charlie Brown, even if your best friend doesn’t snatch back the football every time you try to kick it.

Facetime’s production has attracted seasoned actors and singers who will delight you with their comical antics and strong vocal performances. It features Paul Recupero of Wayne as Charlie Brown, Kate Reynolds of Ardmore as Lucy, Tom Stumme of Conshohocken as Linus, Jessica Potts of Devon as Sally, Brad DeLeone of Phoenixville as Schroeder and Jeff Hunsicker of Collegeville as Snoopy.

“YAGMCB” is family friendly and fun for all ages. Bring the kids and grandkids and meet the characters after the show on Saturday afternoon.

“YAGMCB” is based on the Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz. The book, music and lyrics are by Clark M. Gesner. This production is directed and choreographed by Katie Romano, with music direction by Ben Potts.
