After a triumphant fundraising performance of The Producers for the Actors' Fund in 2010, Talk Is Free Theatre (TIFT) followed up with a fundraising, concert performance of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The performance was held on Sunday, February 10 at 8PM at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, Historic Distillery District in Toronto and raised over 30k! Scroll below for photos from the event!
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown follows an average day in the life of Charlie Brown and the little moments picked from all his days, from Valentine's Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, 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.
The show starred The Globe and Mail's Theatre Critic J. Kelly Nestruck as the title character, with National Post Theatre Critic Robert Cushman appearing as Schroeder, Now Theatre Critic Glenn Sumi taking on Linus and Sheila McCarthy played Sally. The role of Snoopy was divided into small cameos to encourage a wider representation of the theatre company with BroadwayWorld Kelly Cameron, Dean of the Performing Arts at Sheridan College Michael Rubinoff and Rose Theatre manager Costin Manu as agreed participants to date.
The event was directed by Mitchell Cushman, stage managed by Barry Cook and produced by Arkady Spivak.Photo Credit: Russ Martin, courtesy of IATSE 669
