Kindling Your Memories

Headstrong Lucy, piano virtuoso Schroeder, Linus and his blanket, love-swooning Sally, precocious Snoopy and the blockhead himself, Charlie Brown, lead the way through a year in the life of an elementary school introvert and the “Peanuts” gang. From a childhood crush and an almost missed school bus to the hair-raising battles with the Red Barron, you’ll come to understand the comforts of having a blanket as a friend. Learn how to fly a kite, the best way to lose a baseball game and what sorts of things make life happy. This fast-paced and lighthearted musical is guaranteed to please audiences of all ages.
