Live on Stage: Sinclair Theatre’s A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS

SCCT_Charlie Brown 2022 promoCharlie Brown is BACK, live on stage, in Sinclair’s Blair Hall Theatre from December 15th through the 18th. The Sinclair Theatre Dept. is delighted to offer this 40-minute holiday classic for the ninth 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 Charles Larkowski 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.
