Through friendship and a much needed reminder, Charlie Brown and the gang truly learn the real meaning of Christmas.

Rehearsals are Mondays and Tuesday 6 to 8 p.m. Extra rehearsals may be added, scheduling permitted. As well as a full week before opening.
Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown! will be directed by Keith A. Grassette, assisted by Hope Fallon and produced by Cindy and Scot Grassette. Performance dates are set for 7 p.m. on Dec. 13-14, with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Dec. 15.
This play with it's gentle humor, combines the classic Christmas special with many other Peanuts vignettes along with the jazz music of Vince Guaraldi.
