Ever since it first appeared on television in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been a staple of the holiday season in North America.
In fact, the show has appeared every year since it aired on either CBS or ABC, and has even spawned stage productions in local communities.
Thanks to its timelessness, the Charlie Brown Christmas play will continue to be a part of celebrations for years to come.
It’s funny how a simple premise can resonate through the generations, but it is and will remain symbolic of how the quest for the best gifts or prettiest tree often distracts us from the important things during the festive period.
Thompson Valley Players have embraced this play by Charles Schultz and will be presenting it to area theatre lovers this weekend at the Fall Fair Hall in Barriere.
The evening promises to be more than entertaining with a few surprises along the way.
Why not make the acquaintance of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and even Snoopy to start your holiday season of right?
Friday and Saturday evenings the play will start at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are just $5 each and can be purchased at the Star/Journal, Sweetnams, and the Barriere Legion.
