The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences opened its 2012–2013 Premier Series with performances of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, the classic musical centered on the Peanuts comic-strip characters created by Charles M. Schulz.
NSU’s two-week engagement featured a cast of undergraduate student performers, set designers, directors, and stage manager. Hundreds of NSU community members came to campus for the family-friendly theatrical production.
Following the closing performance on Oct. 7, the student cast had a visit from a special guest: Arthur Whitelaw, who produced the original 1967 production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown as well as its Tony Award-winning revival in 1999.
Whitelaw called the college’s Peanuts-inspired production, “one of the freshest takes I’ve seen of the show.”

The college will continue its Premier Series with performances of The Complete History of America (Abridged) at NSU Nov. 9–18. Tickets are now available for the patriotic comedy through the college’s online Box Office.
