A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage is Coming to Spread Christmas Cheer

HUNTINGTON, WV- Christmas time is here- happiness and cheer!  Reynolds and Associates, American Babbitt Bearing, Prichard Electric, Chapman Printing, and Hoops Family Children’s Hospital present A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage at the Keith Albee Performing Arts Center on December 5, 2017 at 7 p.m. Tis the season for Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and all of the Peanuts gang to bring the holiday season back to life!

A Charlie Brown Christmas is an Emmy® and Peabody award-winning story by Charles M. Schulz. The tale has warmed the hearts of millions of viewers since it first aired on television in 1965. Schulz’s timeless story is brought to life in this faithful adaption featuring the unforgettable music of Vince Guaraldi, a neighborhood Christmas play, a scraggly fir Christmas tree, and the whole Peanuts gang.

In A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage, Charlie Brown is saddened by the materialism surrounding the holiday season. Lucy helps Charlie Brown by convincing him to direct the neighborhood Christmas play, however things go amiss when Brown selects a tiny fir tree for the show. It’s up to Linus to save the day and remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas.

“A sweet and touching, live action version that is itself an instant holiday classic.” – Broadway World
