When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

**Sensory Friendly Performance on December 9th at 11:00 am.**

Theatre In The Park is excited to announce its first ever sensory-friendly performance. In an effort to make theatre magic accessible to all families in the Raleigh area, Theatre In The Park will present A Charlie Brown Christmas in a sensory-friendly format Saturday, December 9th at 11am. This special sensory-friendly performance will be presented in a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum, or other sensitivity issues, and their families.

Our staff has taken steps such as adjusting light and sound levels resulting in fewer loud noises and flashing lights. Creating designated ‘Quiet Areas’ where patrons may take breaks, and staffing volunteers onsite to assist families as needed. Our actors will also participate in specialized training especially for this performance.
