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
The classic animated television special A Charlie Brown Christmas comes to life in this faithful stage adaptation, in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang discover the true meaning of Christmas. 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.

“Sensory Friendly” or “Relaxed” performances are designed to provide a supportive and judgment-free environment for people affected by sensory processing or social skills challenges so they may enjoy the shared experience of live theatre. With support and guidance from our sponsor Speech Therapy Solutions Montana, A Charlie Brown Christmas will be an opportunity for Grandstreet to open our doors a little wider and welcome many members of our community who previously may not have been comfortable at the theatre. “Sensory Friendly” and “Relaxed” performances are a growing trend in theatres across the world and Grandstreet is very grateful to Speech Therapy Solutions Montana and their Director Daylinda Radley for helping us launch this new program.
