Atop his kennel, Snoopy surveys the skies, scene of his triumph as a First World War flying ace. Modestly he considers his genius. Stoically he accepts that his brilliance in nearly every field of endeavour will forever go unremarked by humankind. He can but uphold his own high standards. ("I refuse to chase a stick that hasn't been properly sanded and polished") and his own immutable philosophy ("In the book of the life the answers are not in the back").
This charming show features a real person as Snoopy (unless you can get a beagle to learn the routines), and five other members as his human friends with one non-speaking dancer as Woodstock.
But if you wish you can add massed choirs to sing the songs and the local formation dance team to help Woodstock!
