Ages: Actors are portraying children ages 5-9. We expect to cast the show with actors of similar ages. Depending on the pool of talent at auditions, that could be 20’s or 30’s. Moral of the story: bring talented friends around your age to audition with you! All auditioning must be 17 or older. 

Audition Process: Please prepare at least 32 bars of a song that best shows your voice in a style similar to the show; an accompanist will be provided. Auditions will also consist of cold readings from the script and learning a dance sequence. Audition Slots start at 6:30 pm (6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30). For questions or to request an audition slot, email the director at Director.YAGMCB@gmail.com

Rehearsals: Rehearsal will begin no sooner than Sunday, March 25. We are currently planning on Sunday afternoon/evening as well as Tuesday and Thursday evening. Adjustments may be made based on cast availability. 

Character Breakdown: 

We are seeking funny, exciting, and energetic performers with vocal strength, but more importantly, strong actors with great comedic timing. Actors are portraying children ages 5-9. We expect to cast the show with actors of similar ages. Depending on the pool of talent at auditions, that could be 20’s, or 30’s. Moral of the story: bring talented friends around your age to audition with you! 

CHARLIE BROWN (Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to F): His main characteristics are either self-defeating stubbornness or admirable determined persistence to try his best against all odds. He can never win a ballgame but continues playing baseball; he can never fly a kite successfully but continues trying to do so. The show is a day in the life of Charlie Brown. 

SNOOPY (Tenor/Baritone—middle C to high A): Snoopy is a more human-like dog. His character is that of a dog who pretends to be a person (or who sometimes forgets he is a dog). 

LUCY VAN PELT (Mezzo/Alto Belt—G below mid C to high F): She has the persona of a bossy, crabby, manipulative and selfish girl who thrives on telling everyone something. She shows a need for assurance from either Schroeder or Charlie Brown that she is indeed pretty. 

LINUS VAN PELT (Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to E): Though young, Linus is unusually smart and he acts as the show’s philosopher. Despite Linus’ intelligence and mature vocabulary, juvenile aspects of his character are also displayed; for example, Linus is almost always depicted holding his blue security blanket and often sucking his thumb. 

SALLY BROWN (Soprano/Mezzo Belt—middle B flat to high A flat): Despite being portrayed as innocent and adorable, she is noticeably intelligent for her age and this precociousness contributes to the humor of the series. 

SCHROEDER (High Baritone/Tenor—middle B flat to high A flat): He is distinguished by his precocious skill at playing the toy piano, as well as by his love of classical music and the composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
