Good Grief Goes Virtual

By Steven Libowitz   |   August 20, 2020

While you won’t be able to check out the talented kids at Ensemble Theatre’s Young Actors Conservatory this summer, audiences are invited to join in virtually for the season-ending production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. The musical that explores life through the eyes of Charlie Brown and his friends in the Peanuts gang is a series of songs and vignettes based on the beloved comic strip by Charles Schulz, who was an annual staple at the Santa Barbara Writer’s Conference for decades. The uplifting comedy features Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Schroeder, Sally and Linus interacting and includes one of the great topical songs of the theater in “Suppertime.”

The production, which will stream at 2 pm and 7 pm on Saturday, August 22, features six student performers from Santa Barbara County: Cassidy Broderick, Ruby Campbell, Morgan P. Johnson, Leo Kearney, Beck Mortensen,and Jett Mortensen, with direction by Brian McDonald. Tickets cost $25 and are available at
