Tickets On Sale Thursday For “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown”
Local residents will be able to purchase tickets for Pine City High School’s fall musical, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” beginning on Thursday, Oct. 20. The fall show has become a highlight of the school year and recent successes have drawn thousands of spectators from Pine City and beyond to see “Guys and Dolls,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” and more. This year’s show is directed by Brad Mariska and comes to the stage 30 years after first being performed by Pine City students in 1982.
This year’s cast features four talented and experienced seniors: Sean Kehren in the role of Charlie Brown, Ben Miche as his buddy Linus, Renee Schminkey as the faithful sidekick Snoopy, and Laurel Anderson as Charlie’s spunky little sister, Sally. The leads are rounded out by two outstanding juniors: Courtnie Blazek as Lucy (Charlie Brown’s arch-nemesis!) and Adam Martin as the piano-playing, Beethoven-loving Schroeder. There are a total of 26 students in the cast and dozens more serving as members of the crew.
General Admission tickets for Charlie Brown can be picked up at four Pine City businesses starting today (Thursday): Chris’ Food Center, Cabin Coffees, The Flower Box, and Pine Center for the Arts. Reserved Seating is also available starting Monday by calling Em Dunkley at the High School: 320-629-4013. Reserved seating was first introduced last year and was a very popular option, with only about 85 reserved seats available for each performance.
The performance dates for Charlie Brown are November 10, 11, 12, 18, and 19 and 7pm, as well as November 13 at 2pm. All performances are at the Pine City Elementary Auditorium and the doors open for each performance 45 minutes prior to curtain. General Admission tickets will also be available at the door for each performance but they cost $1 extra.
