Charles Schulz’s classic musical “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” is coming to Bellevue this month.

Presented by the Newcastle Players in partnership with Newport Creative Arts, the show will be produced by Tony Ventrella Productions and King County’s 4Culture. It is the first of the inaugural season for the theater group.

“We chose to bring Charlie Brown to Newcastle so that the people of east King County can share in this charming, uplifting and positive theater experience and walk away with a smile on their face,” said Ventrella, a former Seattle Seahawks web host, who started the theater group in 2017.

The performance will be held at Newport Covenant Church, 12800 Coal Creek Parkway SE in Bellevue, just outside of Newcastle city limits.

Starring Adam Minton as Charlie Brown, Jenn Ollivier as Lucy, Jelani Kee as Snoopy, Sarah Fairchild as Sally, Jake Atwood as Linus, and Manny Golez as Schroeder, the charming and uplifting story based on Schulz’s comic strip “Peanuts” with music and lyrics by Clark Gesner will run six shows including two matinees over the course of two weekends in February. The show is choreographed by Tony Pallozzi with Musical Director Benjamin Bentler and directed by Mary Rudd.

The show will begin at 7 p.m. Feb. 16-17 and Feb. 23-24 and again at 2 p.m. Feb. 17 and 24. Doors will open 30 minutes prior and donations will be accepted during intermission. The musical will be provided free and open to all ages.
