Betrayal, murder & other bad behaviors in the 8th grade play

Friday, March 2016

Dear Friends and Families of Chicago Waldorf School,    You are invited to attend:

You’re A Dead Man, Charlie Brown

                Friday, April 1st & Saturday, April 2nd, at 7:30pm

                in the CWS Auditorium  /  1300 W. Loyola Avenue


Broadway’s Planter’s Theatre is set to present a revival of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” when, on opening night, the lead actor is murdered. How could this be? Will the show actually go on? And who dunnit? Follow along as Inspector Doyle O’Connor of the NYPD is called in to unravel this tangled web of deceit, betrayal, murder, and other forms of bad behavior. Enjoy listening to some of the songs and dances (frequently interrupted) of the original play.

Come and enjoy the antics for April Fools Day!

This play was originally written by 8th grade teacher, John Trevillion (with considerable input from his class) in 1995. It was the product, you might say, of a most fortunate accident. In two subsequent productions - in 2003 and 2016 - Mr. Trevillion has solicited further input from the students of those classes, and woven in new material. It has been as much fun to write as it has been to see performed. Come enjoy the twists and turns of the play and support the 8th grade class.

Between Act refreshments will be served. This play is for ages 10 years old and up
Admission is free, but donations toward the 8th grade class fund are welcome.

Thanks to 8th grader, Katherine Norquist for the lovely poster art.
