CHARLIE BROWN: Baritone Bb2 to F4. He is gentle, loving, insecure. A lovable loser with endless determination and hope, but who often fails due to his insecurities, interference from others, and a permanent case of bad luck. Looking for a strong Baritone voice and character actor who can drive the show.
SNOOPY: Tenor C3-A4. He is Charlie Brown’s pet beagle. Snoopy is owned and cared for by Charlie Brown, although at times it is not clear who is in charge. He is loyal, dramatic, genuinely happy, and blessed with a rich fantasy life. He is more human-like than dog. A strong physical and comedic actor that can really sell Snoopy’s imagination and show how ravenous of a dog he can be.
LUCY VAN PELT: Mezzo-Soprano G3 to F#5. She is bossy, selfish, and a know-it-all. She is not deterred by the fact that her information is often inaccurate. She bullies and belittles others, especially Charlie Brown and Linus. She does have a soft side, which is seen through her love for Schroeder. We would rather see the obnoxious aspect of Lucy in the physicality than the vocals in your audition for this role.
LINUS VAN PELT: Baritone Bb2 to E4. He is Lucy’s little brother. Linus always means well and tries to smooth over any storms that arise in the group. He is kind-hearted, caring, and incredibly smart. In contrast to his intellectual maturity is his reliance on his security blanket. Strong actor that can play Linus more serious down to earth side, which gives him his comedic side. Tap experience is a plus but not required.
SALLY BROWN: Soprano B3 to Ab5. Charlie Brown’s younger sister. She is friendly and sweet but can also be lazy and obsessive. Sally has a take it easy approach to life, preferring to slide by while doing as little work as possible. She is hopelessly in love with Linus. A strong comedic actor who can show Sally’s more innocent younger side but also her cynical views on life.
SCHROEDER: Tenor Bb2 to Ab4. He has a precocious skill at playing the piano and an incredible love of classical music and Ludwig van Beethoven. Lucy is infatuated with Schroeder, but he refuses her because Beethoven was a lifelong bachelor, and he feels he must emulate every aspect of his idol’s life. He is a close friend of Charlie Brown and is often the first one to come to his defense. Note: Actor does not need to play the piano. A strong tenor and character actor that can show his more composed side, as well as his obsessive side.
