The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is at it again, y’all. This Christmas a fan favorite is back!! A Charlie Brown Christmas returns to the Taft Theatre December 7-16, 2019! We are so excited to see this one. I mean, is it even December if you don’t watch this show on TV? Now you can see it live too! And as a huge BONUS….. this production features Local 12’s own Bob Herzog as Man’s Best Friend, Snoopy! Every show that Bob Hezog is in skyrockets to be one of my favorites. He is so stinking funny. But, Snoopy doesn’t talk…hmmm….so it will be interesting to see how Bob adds his humor to Snoopy’s character. I can’t wait!
Back by popular demand, bring your family and celebrate the season with our live rendition of your favorite holiday TV special! Don’t let the hustle and bustle of the holidays get you down. Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang are here to remind us about what’s most important during the Yuletide season. 2019 marks the 54th anniversary of the animated TV special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Produced by Lee Mendelson and directed by Bill Melendez, the CBS program debuted on December 9, 1965.”
