The one who comes closest to understanding what he's required to do with the songs and dialog that bookwriter-composer-lyricist Clark Gesner made of Schulz's material (with two songs Andrew Lippa added) is Joshua Colley as, luckily, Charlie Brown.

No one tells Charlie Brown that his intelligence, imagination and value as a human being have nothing to do with the standardized test score.
