You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown poignantly brings to life an "average day in the life of Charlie Brown," made of up little moments picked from all the days of his life. From Valentine's Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day. From the bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

Beginning on Monday July 8, rehearsals for TheatreWorks Stage 2 Teen program will begin for MAN OF LA MANCHA. The rehearsals will run from Mondays through Thursdays from 9am to 12pm until the performances on Friday Aug 9 and Saturday Aug 10. The program is under the direction of professional choreographer Robert Bianca and musical director Joanne Archibald. Tuition is $350.00 per student.

Man of La Mancha tells the story of an imprisoned Miguel de Cervantes, who gets his fellow inmates to enact the story of his novel,Don Quixote about an aged nobleman who declares himself a "knight errant" out to do battle for good and the love of a fair maiden. This is the classic Cervantes novel brought to life with music by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion and playwright Dale Wasserman.

The TWKids and Stage 2 programs are specially designed for the respective age groups and focuses on the craft of acting, including vocal skills and basic choreography along with instruction throughout the process of mounting a production.
