Buffalo Grove High School's theater stage will be transformed into Charles M. Schultz's iconic "Peanuts" comic strip, Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 25-27, for the fall musical, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown."
Clark Gesner penned the book, music and lyrics, based on Schultz's beloved characters.
The production includes all the classic songs, such as "Happiness," "Suppertime," "The Baseball Game," and the title tune.
