Interactive Outdoor Theater
Westmoreland Sanctuary Nature Center & Wildlife Preserve in Mount Kisco will host its outdoor theatrical production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown this month. This is local community theater at its finest. Director Denise Simon is back for her 4th season at Westmoreland Sanctuary Outdoor Theatre. Previous shows included A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Into the Woods and The Wizard of Oz.
“We’re thrilled to share You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown with the entire community,” says Ann Paul, Director at Westmoreland Sanctuary. “There’s a little bit of Charlie Brown in most of us, and that’s just one reason the iconic cast of characters, created by Charles Shulz, has remained so popular over the years.” Westmoreland’s performances are set in a natural outdoor setting, and the audience actually becomes part of the show itself. Following each performance, everyone is welcome to enjoy open-pit toasted marshmallows.
Playing the role of Charlie Brown will be Mateo Lizcano, known for voices in the animated TV shows Peg & Cat and Dora & Friends: Into the City. Mateo also appeared as Patrick in the 2016 Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Abigail Harrison, playing Lucy and Sally, made her Off-Broadway debut in the lead role of Tina Denmark in Ruthless, The Music. Abby also appeared on the 70th Annual Tony Awards and can currently be seen in the hit Showtime TV series, The Affair, playing Stacey.
Performance dates are as follows:
- Fridays: July 21 & 28 @ 6:30
- Saturdays: July 22 & 29 @ 2:00 & 6:30
- Sundays: July 23 & 30 @ 3:00
Tickets are $22 for general admission; $20 for Westmoreland members; $15 for ages 15 and under. Proceeds from ticket sales go to support environmental education and conservation programs at Westmoreland Sanctuary, where almost 10,000 children and young students take classes every year to better understand, appreciate, and enjoy their natural surroundings.

About Westmoreland Sanctuary
Westmoreland Sanctuary is a non-profit nature center and wildlife preserve founded 60 years ago through the vision of philanthropist Helen Clay Frick, daughter of Henry Clay Frick. That initial land contribution of approximately 30 acres in 1957 has since grown to 640 acres of contiguous, preserved land today—free for public use—with 7.5 miles of the finest hiking trails and outdoor vistas offered anywhere in Westchester County.
Westmoreland Sanctuary’s mission is to secure and preserve land for the enjoyment and enrichment of all through Environmental education and Conservation programs. The Sanctuary is open to all, all-year round.
