Charlie Brown Christmas at Fox Theatre

Why see Charlie Brown Christmas?

Peanuts For Christmas

Charlie and the gang are here to show you the true meaning of Christmas in this stage adaptation of the classic TV Special. Debuting in 2013, this theatrical production faithfully recreates the atmosphere of the comic strips and features the jazzy score from the TV show as well as a group of Christmas sing-a-longs at the end. A wonderful way to introduce younger children to the Peanuts gang, and to explore what Christmas is all about Christmas, beyond just the presents!

At the beginning of the show, Charlie Brown has the Christmas Blues. In his eyes, the festive spirit of friendliness and compassion has been forgotten amidst all the frenzied shopping. But with the help of the gang (including Snoopy), Charlie puts on a festive pageant, which helps those around him regain an appreciated for the celebration beyond the gifts and the decorations!

Absolutely loved it

Such a delight! True to the peanuts strip and characters, great music and performances. The actors keep in mind the characters are children, and come across as such, with the combination of wonder and wisdom that comes from the young. The music, since it's introduction in the 60's, has come to define Christmas for a generation. Snoopy is a hoot, as in the strip, a dog who thinks and acts as if he is human. My favorite part comes when they retell the Christmas story, a reminder of what we celebrate every year. Thank you all. ... Read more
