• Boy flying a kite. You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, a musical by Clark Gesner, March 26 – April 5 at Marlene Boll Theatre.

Charlie Brown Musical

We Believe in the Health and Safety of Our Patrons, Supporters and Friends.


Because of the evolving nature surrounding the COVID-19 virus, and to keep our patrons, supporters and friends healthy and safe, along with our students, faculty, staff and professional guest artists, Detroit Mercy Theatre Company has decided to cancel our production of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown." This was a difficult decision to make and one that is both disappointing and sad. However, along with the University of Detroit Mercy, we feel this proactive effort will hopefully help to contain the spread of the virus and ensure the safety of the public and our Detroit Mercy community.


Our ticket office will be in contact with you if you purchased individual or season tickets for this production. If you do have questions or concerns about your ticket purchase, please feel free to contact us at (313) 993-3270.


Let us pray that we may understand this virus to help those most susceptible and that we continue to care for each other with dignity and love in sickness and in health.


But Wait! There's Hope!

We have another season of great theatre planned for you in 2020-2021. 50 seasons. 144 years of theatre. Take a look at what's coming up next year!CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE!

Kindling Your Memories

Headstrong Lucy, piano virtuoso Schroeder, Linus and his blanket, love-swooning Sally, precocious Snoopy and the blockhead himself, Charlie Brown, lead the way through a year in the life of an elementary school introvert and the “Peanuts” gang. From a childhood crush and an almost missed school bus to the hair-raising battles with the Red Barron, you’ll come to understand the comforts of having a blanket as a friend. Learn how to fly a kite, the best way to lose a baseball game and what sorts of things make life happy. This fast-paced and lighthearted musical is guaranteed to please audiences of all ages.
