'A Charlie Brown Christmas' to be performed live in Reading

Show set for November 30 at 7 p.m.

READING, Pa. - Three years after Reading's "ugly" Christmas tree drew international attention and comparisons to Charlie Brown's puny pine, the city will play host to a new stage adaptation of the Peanuts classic.

"A Charlie Brown Christmas" will take the stage at the Santander Performing Arts Center on November 30 at 7 p.m.

The award-winning story by Charles M. Schulz has been a holiday hit since it first aired on television more than 50 years ago.

Now, that story will come to life in a stage adaptation that will feature all of the classic members of the Peanuts gang as they mount a play, save a tree, and discover the true meaning of Christmas.

Tickets for "A Charlie Brown Christmas Live! On Stage" will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. at the Santander Arena box office on Penn Street and online through Ticketmaster.

Reading's choice for its official Christmas tree in 2014 was hailed by some in Berks County, as well as in national news coverage, as an "embarrassment" for the city, but the tree ended up serving as an inspiration for many who saw it as a symbol of the true spirit of the season.
