Sure, you’ve seen A Charlie Brown Christmas on TV hundreds of times, but have you ever seen it up close and personal on stage?

Taproot Theatre is currently presenting the show based on the 50+ year old animated TV special in their Isaac Studio (same building as their main stage) through December 28 (with the exception of Christmas Eve). Everything you love about the TV special is in this production and the performance time has a kid-friendly length of less than 45 minutes so even the squirmiest of kids will be able to sit through and totally enjoy it at the same time. It’s a simple play and simple story that promotes the true meaning of Christmas in a fun way.

A Charlie Brown Christmas does come with a few options as well. All daytime performances at 1:00 pm. and 4:00 p.m. are for all ages. Evening performances at 7:00 p.m. are for those age 5 and up. Sensory friendly performances (increased lighting in the seating area throughout the performance, lower sound levels, a smaller audience, etc.) are also available on December 3 at 1:00 p.m. and December 10 at 4:00 p.m.

Tickets for A Charlie Brown Christmas are $25 for adults and $15 for kids age 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased online or calling the box office at (206) 781-9707 or online. Taproot Theatre Company’s Isaac Studio Theatre is located at 212 N. 85th St., Seattle 98103.
