The Peanuts gang celebrate the holiday season with a bit of mayhem, confusion, and, finally, joy, in 'A Charlie Brown Christmas,' presented Nov. 24 at the Byham Theater.

Even the sometimes morose Charlie Brown rallies as the holiday season approaches, and joins his pals to celebrate as they skate, sing and decorate their way through Christmas.

Charlie, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the "Peanuts" gang will bring to life "A Charlie Brown Christmas," Charles M. Schulz's Emmy and Peabody award-winning tale, at Pittsburgh's Byham Theater on Nov. 24.

The popular story, featuring beloved characters from comics, books and television specials, was first broadcast more than 50 years ago.

Now the animated special that is part of so many fans' must-sees during the holiday season comes to life in a faithful stage adaptation featuring everyone's favorite characters and the classic Vince Guaraldi score.

Watch as Charlie Brown and his friends rehearse for a school play, transform a pitiful pine tree, and discover the true meaning of Christmas.

The all-new touring show is a heartwarming way for families to kick off the yuletide season.

Performances are at 1 and 4 p.m.. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Sept. 15, with prices starting at $30.
