MONTICELLO, NY — Robert J. Kaiser Middle School will present this year’s musical, “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” on Friday, January 24 and Saturday, January 25 at the Eugene D. Nesin Theater on St. John Street at 7 p.m. The musical is directed by Timothy Buckley; the choral and music directors are John Bernstein and Amy Phillips; and the stage director is Tricia Cahalan.

“You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revised)” opened on Broadway in 1999. It is a fresh approach to the all-time 1967 classic. Sally Brown joins Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty, and Snoopy in this version. Two new songs, “Beethoven Day” and “My New Philosophy,” have been added to the 12 numbers of the original version, such as “My Blanket and Me,” “The Kite,” and “Happiness.”

The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets can be pre-purchased by calling the middle school at 845/796-3058 or from a cast member.
