Christmastime is here. Happiness and cheer. And for Peanuts fans everywhere, it just wouldn't be Christmas without this classic holiday delight. Christmas lights may be twinkling red and green, but Charlie Brown has the Yuletide blues. To get in the holiday spirit, he takes Lucy's advice and directs the Christmas play. And what's a Christmas play without a Christmas tree? But everyone makes fun of the short, spindly nevergreen Charlie Brown brings back - until the real meaning of Christmas works its magic once again. Directed by Bridget Allen

One of KMLT's play contest entrants. This play follows two characters Ashley and Sara. Ashley is a Christmas tree who must learn her purpose. Many Christmas trees at the Cletus’ Christmas Tree Farm will help her understand. Sara is a girl learning to cope with her father being deployed on Christmas. This heartwarming, family friendly play shows the true meaning of Christmas and how even in difficult times, hope persists. Written by Calib Wright and Katelyn Wright, Directed by Meredith Bridges

December 4 at 2:30pm & 8pm
