Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip comes to life in this joyful, classic Broadway musical. It’s an “average day in the life” of the Peanuts gang, from bright uncertain mornings to hopeful starlit evenings. Blockhead Charlie Brown, bossy Lucy, prodigy Schroeder, perfectionist Sally, blanket-toting Linus and lovable Snoopy battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.

In this Broadway musical, the 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country. The 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on Broadway and off. With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform highly entertaining toe-tappers such as “Drinkin’ Shoes,” “Farmer Tan” and “The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine!” on guitars, piano, bass—and yes, kitchen utensils.
