THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Musical Theatre Department will present You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown October 18, 19, and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and October 21 at 2:00 p.m. in the Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center–Lee Little Theatre.

The musical, based on the wildly popular Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz, is probably best described as an average day in the life of Charlie Brown. It is a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair. The familiar cast of characters is there, from Lucy and Linus, to Schroeder, Sally, and, of course, Snoopy.

“Anybody who’s a Peanuts fan will be able to relive lots of fun memories from the comic strip,” said EAC Musical Theatre Director Trish Jordahl.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students, and are on sale now at the EAC Ticket Office. Call (928) 428-8228 for more information.
