A Charlie Brown Christmas
by Magik Theatre
Dec. 12 - Dec. 24, 2019
The classic animated television special comes to life in this faithful adaptation. When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.
“Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas was always a holiday family tradition for me, which makes seeing it come to life onstage all the better,” says Artistic Director Anthony Runfola. “Whether it’s at the Empire where you can explore the Riverwalk, or at Magik where you can play in Hemisfair after the show, this production is the perfect way to share the tradition with your kids while also taking in all of the holiday fun that downtown has to offer.”
By Charles M. Schulz, based on the television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson, stage Adaptation by Eric Schaeffer. By Special Arrangement with Arthur Whitelaw and Ruby Persson.
