The Holidays are here and Sinclair is ready to present a special showing of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The classic holiday special from 1965 is being brought to life this December. 

The Sinclair Theatre program is presenting “A Charlie Brown Christmas” Dec. 13-16. This holiday show was originated by the antics of characters from Charles M.Schulz’s “Peanuts” comics and the television special of the same name by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson. This holiday show has been a tradition at Sinclair Community College and a joyful time for family fun.  

The story of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” focuses on finding the meaning of Christmas again. Charlie Brown complains about the materialism and lack of tradition to good friend Lucy. Lucy suggests to Charlie that he should direct the school Christmas pageant, which he accepts. Charlie soon realizes that the pageant he is directing reinforces his beliefs in materialism in Christmas. Charlie will find the true meaning of Christmas once again so he can help the rest of the Peanuts gang celebrate the holiday in the way they were meant to.
