AMHERST, NY (WIVB) – O’Connell & Company in Amherst presents the timeless holiday classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas Live.”
The show is about celebrating the meaning of the Christmas season and bringing out the child in all of us.
It’s based on the TV special, which makes this local production especially important this year. It has been announced that “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will not be televised this year for the first time.
Mary Kate O’Connell said: “It’s the first year they haven’t shown it on TV. So we were able to get the script for the TV show and it’s wonderful. First the show is about 40 minutes long, then after, the second act, we have the kids going out with the characters and frosting cookies and ornaments so they have a take-out.
The show runs the day after Thanksgiving, November 25 through December 18.
