Theatre & Film

The Cerritos College Theatre & Film Department offers up this Off-Broadway charming family-friendly musical about "an average day in the life of Charlie Brown." Though considered a "good man" by his friends, Charlie Brown can't seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, nor his friend Lucy, her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy. Tickets are on sale online and at the box office one hour prior to each performance. Tickets on sale online now! Follow link below. This is a family-friendly production.
