The classic animated television special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” comes to life in a faithful stage adaptation at Music Mountain Theatre, in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts Gang discover the true meaning of Christmas.
Returning for a second-year as Charlie Brown is Tyler Hentz. He appeared at MMT most recently in the ensemble of “Curtains” and as Tommy Djilas in “The Music Man,” for which he won the Subscriber’s Favorite Youth Actor Award this year. Hentz also has starred at the Walnut Street Theatre in “Elf’ and in the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular.”
Also starring are MMT Junior Company members Emmie Herman, Drew Freeman and Jason Weiland as Sally Brown, Linus and Snoopy, respectively.
The performances on Dec. 15, at both 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. will be ASL interpreted as part of MMT’s initiative to make theater accessible to all. Trained ASL interpreters are paired with trainees, and they interpret one full day of children’s theater performances for each show in the season.
Santa Hat Day at “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is also Dec. 15, at the 11 a.m. performance only. All audience members will get a Music Mountain Theatre Santa Hat.
Performances run Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Dec. 15 through 22. Tickets are $8 at musicmountaintheatre.org or 609-397-3337. The theater is located at 1483 Route 179, Lambertville, N.J.
