CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

CHARLIE BROWN –A lovable loser, a child possessed of endless determination and hope, but who is ultimately dominated by his insecurities and a “permanent case of bad luck”. He is often taken advantage of by his peers.  STRONG Actor & singer needed.

LUCY VAN PELT –  A crabby, bossy, selfish girl!  She is especially mean to Charlie Brown and her “stupid” little brother Linus.  Lucy is in love with Schroeder who has NO interest in her whatsoever.  Lucy is loud, obnoxious and has a very strong personality.  STRONG actress & singer.
LINUS VAN PELT – He is Lucy little brother . Linus always means well and tries to smooth over any storms that arise amongst the gang. A source of frustration for him is Lucy,who always belittles him, particularly over his “stupid blanket” which is always at his side.  He and Shermy are Charlie Brown’s best friends.  STRONG actor, singer & dancer.
SALLY BROWN – Charlie Brown’s younger sister.  Sally has a “take it easy” approach to life, preferring to slide by while doing as little work as possible.  She is hopelessly in love with Linus.  Sally has philosophies on life although they are not the most well thought out philosophies, basically being phrases such as, “Who cares?”,”Why me?”, and “How should I know?   STRONG comedic actress & singer.
PEPPERMINT PATTY– Patty is a star athlete!  Clearly the best player on the baseball team.  She is lazy and dimwitted and still doesn’t realize Snoopy is a dog.  He is just a “funny looking kid with a big nose”.  She is best friends with Marcie.  STRONG actress & singer.
SCHROEDER– He has a precocious skill at playing the piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven.   Lucy is infatuated with Schroeder but since Beethoven is a lifelong bachelor, Schroeder feels that he must emulate every aspect of his idol’s life.  STRONG singer & actor needed.
