About the Show
The Annoyance presents its annual Christmas Pageant, featuring a retelling of two classic holiday stories: A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The all-new cast takes these classic holiday television specials and gives them a hilarious yet still family-friendly new life on stage. In the first, poor Charlie Brown searches for the true meaning of Christmas while enduring the commercialization of the season and insults from the acid tongue of Lucy van Pelt. Then, its the adventures of Rudolph, the freakishly red-nosed reindeer, who runs away from home with his friend Hermie end discovers the island of misfit toys and the terrible Abominable Snowman, ultimately learning that it’s okay to be different.
Also running Fridays at 8pm starting in November.
