A Charlie Brown Double Bill

December 2-23

A Manitoba Theatre for Young People Production

Good grief! MTYP is bringing back our signature holiday show, A Charlie Brown Double Bill this December. This show combines your two Peanuts favourites: You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Get into the holiday spirit with a “wonderful, moving experience,” (audience review, 2017) that will help you remember the true meaning of the holiday season.

Charlie Brown has had a rough year and just cannot get into Christmas. When he is asked to direct the pageant, he is determined to turn things around. Plus, everyone’s favourite accident-prone boy tries to muster up the courage to talk to the little red-haired girl.

Double your fun with this musical holiday classic for the entire family!

“A charming double bill…A story about finding happiness in the sometimes confusing and challenging world of being a kid.” – CBC Radio

Recommended for ages 5+
approximate running time: 90 minutes including a five-minute stretch break
