WHO: Dominic Lewis, Director/Founder of Bare Productions
WHAT: “Bare Productions are a new, fresh Edinburgh-based company comprising of some of the best local talent who have all performed in multiple five-star sell-out shows at the Fringe. This year they bring Schulz’s comic characters to life in this Tony Award-winning musical. Come on an adventure with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang as they navigate the ups and downs of life as a 6-year-old. The show will make adults laugh their socks off whilst still not crossing any watershed boundaries making it a must-see for kids too.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes, it’s the first time Bare Productions are at the Fringe. We are a collection of EUSOG veterans who, as students, were involved in productions such as Avenue Q (2014) and Little Shop Of Horrors (2015). We decided to launch this company to generate opportunities for Edinburgh-based theatre-lovers who wanted to continue theatre post-University.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?
I think the biggest thing is our creation. It has been a whirlwind 10 months and we have been thrilled at the support we have received so far. We had our launch party back in November and then chose our show and now we are here ready to take on Fringe 2018.
Tell us about your show.
Our show is called “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”. It’s a comedy musical about the Peanuts characters which was originally created in the 60s but got a fresh revamp on Broadway in 1999 where Kristen Chenoweth (original Glinda in Wicked) played Sally Brown. The show is like a snapshot-style musical. Lots of scenes which give insight into what life is like to be a 6 year old (or in the case of Snoopy- a dog). The best thing about the show is that it’s hilarious for all ages. Watching adults play kids is side-splittingly funny but the show isn’t remotely rude so great for children too.
The show has 6 characters in it: Snoopy, Linus, Lucy Van Pelt, Sally, Schroeder and of course – Charlie Brown.
We are hopeful to continue doing many more comedy musicals post-Fringe and are keen to continue Bare Productions into the future.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
They should see some of the other musicals that are on: Bohemians, EUSOG are doing Drowsy Chaperone and Footlights are doing American Idiot.
