The musical-comedy “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” debuted off-Broadway in 1967 in the East Village neighborhood of Lower Manhattan.

If you already have your streaming tickets [get them here; streaming opportunities are limited], LBC | Capital has some fun family time ideas to make your afternoon or evening of watching the show even more memorable.

FUN FOOD

Charlie ‘Brownies:’ After lunch or dinner, whip up some brownies, either from scratch or using a box mix. Give them some Charlie Brown character by icing them yellow and decorating with the iconic zig-zag stripe from Charlie’s shirt. Or add ‘Peanuts’ (see what we did there?) or ‘Peppermint Patties’ (wink, wink).

Woodstock’s Bird Nests: Check out this easy recipe from AllRecipes.com that calls for just four ingredients, and the kids can help, too!

Snow Cones: Remember the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine? Make your own snow cones at home in a blender with a recipe and instructions from Hamilton Beach.

    We were so bummed to see that we missed Charlie Brown (my dad’s favorite and he went home to be with the Lord last year). We received the email with the streaming details on the 15th; unfortunately after all the dates/times had passed. Is there perhaps another method of communicating that we might be missing on our end? Our family loves theater! (Our daughter is on campus there and sadly she forgot too.)

    Thanks for any help you might be able to give.
