ABOUT THE SHOW
Presented as a live, verbatim recreation of the television special from Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson, A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. Schulz follows Charlie as he attempts to overcome the materialism of the holiday season by directing a Christmas pageant. As his efforts to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fail, he turns to his best friend Linus to discover the real meaning of Christmas. This show is perfect for adults who've grown up with the movie and children who are discovering it for the first time!
As part of the show, Gaslight Theatre will also transform their lobby into Pinetree Corners, a name which pays homage to another Peanuts comic strip. This family-friendly experience includes free holiday crafts, goodie bags, and pictures with Santa Claus. Pinetree Corners will be open one hour prior to curtain of all performances. Hot chocolate, baked goods, and other concessions will also be on sale.
