The OHS theater department is performing their latest show, A Charlie Brown Christmas, on Thursday through Saturday, with each night’s performance slated for 7:30 p.m.  The show runs 30 minutes and follows the same script as the Charlie Brown Christmas TV special, which is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year.

There is a slight difference between this version and the TV version (which ran 26 minutes) in that there is an added vocal group that sings before the Charlie Brown Christmas story begins.  The group sings songs from other Christmas specials that will soon be celebrating their 50th anniversaries, such as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and “Frosty the Snowman.”

On Wednesday, at 8 p.m., OHS teachers had the opportunity to see the show for free.  On Friday, there will be two matinee performances at at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. for second through fourth grade OSD students to watch the play.

“It’s a great show that will cross generations.  Everyone can come to it and enjoy it, and everyone of all ages will get something out of it,” Theater teacher and director John Davenport said.
