Auditions - Theatre Ancaster’s 2018 Firehall Show

You're A Good Man Charlie Brown

Theatre Ancaster is proud to announce upcoming auditions for its 2018 Firehall show You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Follow the antics of good old Charlie Brown as he spends a day pondering the meaning of life. In between kite-flying escapades, baseball games and failed attempts to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, he finds solace and friendship with Linus, his sister Sally, nemesis Lucy, musical genius Schroeder – and, of course, man’s best friend, Snoopy!  Fun for the whole family, set to a singable score that was nominated for the Grammy for Best Musical Show Album – twice!

We are looking for a cast of six adult actors.  All auditions will be held at the [former] Ancaster Memorial School Building, 357 Wilson St. E, Ancaster, ON L9G 2C1 [Enter at the rear of the building via Sulphur Springs Road and Queen St.]
