'You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown' at Surfside
This beloved musical, which debuted in 1967 and enjoyed a Broadway revival in 1999 with additional songs, follows an average day, or rather a day made of little moments from throughout the life of Charlie Brown, from Valentine's Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening, shared with the lives of his friends both human and canine. Charles Schulz's comics transported weary adults back to the simple innocent days of their youth, and Surfside proudly brings his creation to our stage this summer.
Show dates are through Sunday, Aug. 12, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
Cost is $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and active military and $15 for students.
Season tickets cost $100 (adults) and $75 (seniors/students/active military) for seven admissions.
Updates for the complete season are at www.surfsideplayers.com.

Call (321) 783-3127 for reservations. The box office has a live operator from 2-4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. At other times of day, please leave name and callback number on voicemail.
