Charlie Brown and the gang celebrate Christmas on the Byham stage
Their tree may be scraggly, their spirit may be lagging, but when Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts' gang finally celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, their joy is contagious.
For over 50 years, families have made viewing the televised "A Charlie Brown Christmas," part of their holiday traditions.
Charles M. Schulz's characters have warmed generations of hearts in the animated special, featuring the classic Vince Guaraldi score.
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," the 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, shows Charlie Brown and his friends as they 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.
Tickets are available for the 4 p.m. show only, starting at $30.
