Preshow dinner on Friday, Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m.!
It's an average day in the life of Charlie Brown, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening. It seems to start off all right. Charlie is then left to his own musings as he eats his lunch on the school playground, complicated unbearably by the distant presence of his true love, the "little redheaded girl," who is always just out of sight.
True love also seems to be the only unmanageable element in Lucy's solid life, which we discover as we watch her try to bulldoze her way through to her boyfriend Shroeder's sensitive, six-year-old musician's heart. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings.
And then it is evening. The gathered friends end the day, realizing what makes them truly happy and leaving Lucy to make a very un-Lucy-like gesture: she tells Charlie Brown what a good man he is.
