Brown Christmas rather than white in Tacoma
December 21, 2013 by Mark
Taking place over the next few days, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ is a musical production with a limited number of performances, in which the lead character attempts to unveil the true meaning of Christmas. The promoters might have used a combination of brochure printing and flyer printing to spread the word to people in this community, as well as those in surrounding areas.
This story takes a look at the commercialization of Christmas and serves to remind people about its true meaning by bringing the famous cartoon strip to life. In this story, Charlie Brown is joined by the rest of the Peanuts gang, and the story begins with them all skating on a pond in the winter. Charlie tells Linus, his friend, that even with Christmas approaching he is still feeling depressed and blue, despite all the gifts, the tree, and the cards. His friends are irritated by his attitude and his mailbox remains empty, although he attempts to thank Violet for the card she sent him, sarcastically. Then, Charlie Brown stops by Lucy’s Psychiatric booth. Suddenly, Lucy decides he needs to become more involved and asks him to direct the Christmas play.
Tickets for this production cost $10 per person, and it will be happening from today until Tuesday, December 24, at the Tacoma Musical Playhouse.
