ROLES AVAILABLE: Four females / 18+, Three males / 18+
CHARLIE BROWN – (Male presenting. Any race. 18+) A “lovable loser”, Charlie Brown is the everyman with ever changing moods. Both befriended and ostracized by all, Charlie Brown is often depressed but rises out of every downfall with shining hope and determination.
SNOOPY – (Any gender. Any race. 18+) Charlie Brown’s pet beagle. Snoopy is loyal, innocent, imaginative and good-natured; known for his “happy dance” and his numerous alter-egos. A non-speaking role - physicality and improv a must. Must be able to dance and move freely.
LUCY (Female presenting. Any race. 18+) Linus’ older sister. Lucy is characterized as a "fussbudget", crabby, bossy and opinionated girl who bullies most other characters, particularly Linus and Charlie Brown.
LINUS (Male presenting. Any race. 18+) Charlie Brown’s blanket-toting best friend and Lucy’s little brother; Sally’s love interest; Though young and insecure, Linus is very intelligent and very wise; acts as the group’s philosopher and theologian.
SALLY (Female presenting. Any race. 18+) The youngest of the group. Sally is Charlie Brown’s little sister who has a crush on Linus; is adorable and spunky but often overreacts to situations.
SCHROEDER (Male presenting. Any race. 18+) A very talented musician, who is obsessed with the music of Beethoven; Lucy’s love interest; Charlie Brown’s second-best friend after Linus.
PIG PEN (Male presenting. Any race. 18+) Known for attracting dust, making him very filthy but with a good heart.
FRIEDA (Female presenting. Any race. 18+) The girl who brags about her “naturally curly hair”; a total diva.
VIOLET (Female presenting. Any race. 18+) A jealous girl who likes bragging, and along with her friends Patty and Lucy, often teases and torments Charlie Brown.
PATTY (Female presenting. Any race. 18+) Not to be confused with Peppermint Patty. Patty is a girl who thinks highly of herself, and because of her self-opinion, she often torments the hapless Charlie Brown.
SHERMEY (Male presenting. Any race. 18+) A friend of Charlie Brown’s. Very dry; complains he always gets cast as a shepherd in the play.
