How do we persevere to find value & meaning?

By Charles M. Schulz
Based on the television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson

It's the 65th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip and the 50th anniversary of this all-time favorite holiday special!

The animated classic will come to life on The Coterie stage -
and a live jazz trio will play the original Vince Guaraldi arrangements!

Join Charlie Brown on his quirky journey as he tries to direct the school Christmas pageant.  While everyone is acting materialistic, he tries to restore the holiday spirit with a ragged little fir tree.  Experience the power of this wonderful story live onstage as Charlie Brown turns to his best friend Linus to learn the season’s real meaning.
