About The Show

The holiday classic about a boy searching for the real meaning of Christmas.

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 television special comes to life in this faithful adaptation where the Peanuts gang grapples with the real meaning of Christmas. In order to get him into the spirit of Christmas, Lucy convinces Charlie Brown to direct the school’s Christmas play. Little does he know he is about to guide his undisciplined and uncooperative friends, Lucy, Linus, Pig Pen, Sally, Schroeder, Snoopy and the bunch to an understanding of what the holiday is all about.
