A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS CONCERT
December 19
Penndale Middle School

Vince Guaraldi's piano score to the TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas has earned a well-deserved classic status all its own.

SLEEPING BEAUTY: A MUSICAL PANTO
Through January 15
People's Light

People's Light - Sleeping Beauty

The slapstick goofiness of the British theatrical tradition of a holiday panto goes back centuries. People's Light is well aware of the convention and can therefore pull one off with hilarious skill. All the elements are in place: a familiar fairy tale, a cast of unconventional roles, some anachronistic music, a dash of magic and plenty of audience participation.
