Presented by Actors' Repertory Theatre of Simi. Charles Schulz's beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner's classic musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn't give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and "blockhead," himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine's Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you're keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find "Happiness," You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic. Tickets are $28 Adults, $24 Seniors & Students and $20 Children 12 & Under.
PLEASE NOTE: The Sat matinees on March 21, 28 and April 4 will feature an all youth cast. All other performances will feature and adult cast.

Lit Live Theater Company and the Simi Valley Arts Alliance return with an all new production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK. Based on the real-life story told in one of the most famous books of all time, this play dramatizes the 1942-1944 writings of a Jewish schoolgirl, chronicling her fate and that of seven other friends and family members who are in hiding from the Nazis. Anne Frank emerges from history an intensely gifted young girl, who confronts the increasing horror for her time with honesty, wit and determination. An impassioned drama, this play captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence - their fear, their hope, their laughter and their grief. Anne's spirit and optimism touches al audiences and reminds us that forgiveness and faith in the good of people is what keeps the world in balance, even when all seems lost. Tickets are $24 Adults, $20 Seniors & Military, $12 Students and Teachers.
