Thanks for visiting ACTS! Here's what's happening next:


You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown 

based on the comic strip by Charles M. Schulz

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Clark Gesnar


Based on the beloved Peanuts comic strip, we find Charlie Brown getting his kite stuck in the tree, hoping for love with the little red-headed girl, and finding out that happiness really is a warm puppy. The show is loaded with entertaining and humorous musical numbers, such as Schroeder's monumental ode to his favorite composer, "Beethoven Day," Charlie Brown's attempt at flying a kite, in "The Kite Song" and the tale of school struggles in the hilarious counterpoint number, "The Book Report."

August 1, 2, 8, 9 at 7:30 pm; August 3, 10 at 2:30 pm. 

Tickets for the show are $11 general admission, $9 students and seniors, and $12 premium seating (front two rows), while available. Tickets may be reserved by leaving a message on ACTS' reservation line, 937-7770. Reservations will be available at the door up to 15 minutes before show time, and all tickets may be purchased with cash or check only (checks made payable to ACTS). 

Join us for Dinner and a Show Saturdays this season!
