Child performers from Broadway shows School of Rock, Finding Neverland, Matilda the Musical and others are gathering Sept. 2 and 3 at 54 Below cabaret to perform and record the score to the 1967 musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown for Broadway Records.

Titled "Happiness is... 54 Below Sings You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!," the event features the kids singing the 1999 Broadway revival version of the score, which combines the original Grammy-nominated music by Clark Gesner, with additional music from Andrew Lippa.
