A new musical featuring Charles Schulz's iconic “Peanuts” characters Charlie Brown, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Lucy, Linus and Woodstock, under the guidance of that consummate showman Snoopy, as they sing and dance their way through witty philosophies about love and life as only The Peanuts gang can. In addition to a beloved score featuring songs like "Just One Person,” "Edgar Allan Poe,” and "Poor Sweet Baby," this revusical introduces a new song for Sally with music by award-winning composer Larry Grossman (Minnie's Boys, Goodtime Charley) and lyrics by award-winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown Broadway Revival, Big Fish, Addam’s Family). With fresh orchestrations and a revised book, audiences can expect The Peanuts characters to dance into their hearts more than ever before!
Developed by the head of musical theater at Texas State University, director/actor Kaitlin Hopkins (Batboy, Bare, Noises Off ) choreographer Adam Cates (Broadway's upcoming musical Anastasia, A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder), and Larry Grossman, The World According to Snoopy was first produced in a workshop presentation by the Texas State Department of Theatre and Dance as part of the Harrison/Bowman New Works Commission in the spring of 2015.
