A Charlie Brown Christmas
10:30am, 11:30am and 1:30pm, Auditorium
Christmas lights may be twinkling red and green, but Charlie Brown has the Yuletide blues. To get in the holiday spirit, he takes Lucy’s advice and directs the Christmas play. And what’s a Christmas play without a Christmas tree? But everyone makes fun of the shorty, spindly nevergreen Charlie Brown brings back—until the real meaning of Christmas works its magic once again. For Peanuts fans everywhere, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without this classic holiday delight.
