Cast & Crew Roles

Admirable for his dogged ability to keep trying in the face of never succeeding in anything he does. Very resilient. He is a kind and generous person.
Blunt with advice and wanting confirmation of her worth from others, she can be (willfully?) oblivious to others’ feelings— especially Charlie Brown. She is infatuated with Schroeder and is the sister of Linus.
A gentle philosopher with a large vocabulary, who can become quite vocal in defense of his security blanket.
Younger than the others (Charlie Brown’s sister), but just as intelligent…sometimes precocious.
A piano prodigy who loves Beethoven.
Classically anthropomorphized, Snoopy is a reflection of creativity and wisdom and humanity. Will never be an “ordinary dog.”
Other members of the Peanuts world. May include references to characters including The Little Red-Headed Girl, Woodstock, Pigpen, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and others.
