LIVE ON STAGE: Sinclair Theatre's "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

Charlie Brown is BACK, live on stage, in Sinclair’s Blair Hall Theatre from December 2nd through 5th. The Sinclair Theatre Dept. is delighted to offer this 40-minute holiday classic for the seventh time. With tickets remaining at their 2014 price of $8, this is a perfect introduction for young children to LIVE theatre. First shown as an animated TV special based on Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts characters in 1965, this show has become a Sinclair family tradition.

Directed by Gina Kleesattel with music direction by David Brush and choreography by Rodney Veal, this faithful stage adaptation features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang as they grapple with the real meaning of Christmas. Featuring colorful costumes and scenery, the show is perfect for school, church, scout and other youth groups.

“It’s delightful to see many groups and families returning year after year to get in the holiday spirit,” says Gina Neuerer, chair of Sinclair’s Music, Theatre and Dance Dept. “We’re also excited to continue our partnership with Sinclair’s American Sign Language Dept. to continue our shadow interpreted performances.”

All seats are reserved and the regular house policy of  “no children under 6” has been lifted. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Please review detailed house policies before ordering tickets. Vaccinations are not required, but encouraged, and patrons 6 and up must wear a mask on all Sinclair campuses.
