Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang explore life's great questions as they play baseball, struggle with homework, sing songs, swoon over their crushes, and celebrate the joy of friendship.

A special event outdoors in Memorial Park in Sierra Madre. All COVID protocols in effect at the
time of opening will be followed.


About Seating For This Event
Seating will be in socially distanced circles, six feet apart, to accommodate parties of two, four, or six. This will be primarily lawn seating (please bring your own blankets), but there will also be circles designated for people who bring chairs. Guests are responsible for bringing their own chairs and blankets. All chair-allowed circles can also accommodate wheelchairs (we highly recommend they be able to lock).
There are twelve 2-person, blanket-only circles, fourteen 4-person, blanket-only circles, ten 4-person, chair-allowed circles, two 6-person, blanket-only circles, and three 6-person, chair-allowed circles. The maximum number of people who can attend each of the 12 shows (and 1 preview) is 150.
Choosing Your Circle (TICKET SALES OPEN MAY 3)
This event is assigned-seating (or in this case, assigned-circle) only, and we are only selling circles in their entirety and not seats per individual. As there are limited numbers of each type of circle, we recommend that you purchase your preferred type of circle in advance. Please keep in mind when purchasing to choose a circle based on your preferred type of seating (chairs will only be allowed in chair-allowed circles), and that you are responsible for bringing your own blankets or chairs. The number of people in each party must be within the stated capacity of their purchased circle, including children (with the exception of babies in carriers).
Prices are based on the number of people each circle can accommodate -- there is no price difference between circles that are blanket-only or chair-allowed. Please keep in mind that prices are set as listed, there are no senior or youth discounts for this event.
In the event that you need to exchange or cancel your reservation, please see our policies about exchanging/refunding.

How To Get To Your Circle On Show Day
There are four seating sections, each named to reflect their respective entrance gates. We hope this will allow everyone to get to their assigned circles as quickly and safely as possible. Your circle’s section will indicate which entrance-only gate you will be checking in at and entering through. Each circle has their own individual, unique number -- please ensure you only enter and sit in your assigned circle. Exchanging or switching seating circles while in the seating area on the day of your show, even if they are of the same type, is not permitted.
The four entrance gates -- Northwest, North, Northeast, and Southeast -- are entrance-only during the duration of the show. To exit the seating area during the show if need be, please use the Southwest Gate (this gate is an exit-only gate). To re-enter the seating area, please go through your respective entrance gate once again to return to your assigned circle. At the beginning of intermission and after the show ends, more gates will be available to exit from (please follow instructions given during the event).


Q: How will the show be different because of COVID-19? What COVID protocols will be in place?
A: We will be performing this show outdoors, in accordance with the current COVID protocols at this date.* Masks that securely and snugly cover the nose and mouth are required for everyone and must be worn at all times. Temperature checks of all individuals will be taken prior to entering the seating area. Seating circles are spaced at least 6 feet apart from one another and there will be clearly marked entrances/exits and pathways for everyone to walk through/along.

Q: Where is the show venue located, since it is not taking place at the Playhouse?
A: You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown will be performed in Sierra Madre Memorial Park, which is located at 222 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre, CA 91024. Memorial Park is next to City Hall, just west of Sierra Madre Playhouse.
Q: Is there an age limit for this show? Are children allowed to attend?
A: You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown is a family-friendly show that has something for everyone! While there is no set minimum age limit, we do ask that all guests, including children, be able to remain seated throughout the show.
Q: Since this is an outdoor show, what will the weather be like?
A: In the sunny summer months, Sierra Madre’s temperature in the early evenings is usually around 70-80 °F. However, once the sun goes down at around 7:30-8:00 pm, the temperature will fall to around 60-70 °F. We recommend that you dress comfortably for sitting on Memorial Park’s lawn, but also bring sun protection for while the sun is out and a jacket for the evening. There won’t be a canopy over the seating area, but luckily it is very unlikely to rain or be very windy in the summer!

Q: Can I bring a picnic since this show is outdoors?
A: There is no picnicking allowed at this event. According to the current COVID protocols at this date*, no food or drinks are allowed in the seating area and masks must be kept on at all times. You may carry properly sealed food or drinks with your belongings, but all food and drinks must be consumed outside of the venue.
Q: Where can I park my car?
A: There is ample free street parking near the park (street parking is allowed until 2 am), a small free parking lot on the North side of (behind) the Playhouse (this lot closes at midnight, please be sure to move your vehicle if you plan on staying in the area after that time), and a larger free parking lot South of the Playhouse (this lot also closes at midnight). Please be sure to follow all street signage regarding parking, and keep in mind that U-turns are illegal (and a ticketable offense) on Sierra Madre Blvd.

*This may be updated as COVID protocols may change.
