A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS LIVE ON STAGE Comes to Spencer Theater Next Week
Take a break from your holiday hustle and indulge in the shear joy of "A Charlie Brown Christmas: LIVE ON STAGE," a new stage adaptation of the award-winning animated classic coming to life at Spencer Theater on Friday, November 17 at 7 p.m.
Designed for patrons of all ages, this premiere touring production of the playfully profound tale showcases a captivating cast of adult professional actors, plus a jazz trio jamming-out the timeless tale's indelible Vince Guaraldi score.
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Schroeder, Peppermint Patty and all the rest of the Peanuts gang on stage as they skate and play in the snow, contemplate the significance of the season, mount a biblical play, save a scrawny tree and uncover the true meaning of Christmas.
The original story, written by Charles M. Schultz was first aired as an animated Christmas special on CBS in 1965. The story and the TV adaptation won a Peabody and Emmy, and its ground-breaking original tunes and arrangements of Christmas favorites, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and added to the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry list of "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important" sound recordings.
The November 17 stage play at the Spencer is bedded by those famed tunes, and upon the story's close, the jazz trio and the Peanuts characters will lead a sing-along concert of holiday carols with our festive audience.
"A Charlie Brown Christmas: LIVE ON STAGE" is produced by Gershwin Entertainment, a New York-based nationally touring theatre company.
