About the Show
The Annoyance Theatre 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 gives these classic holiday television specials a hilarious spin, all the while keeping them appropriate for little ones’ eyes and ears. In the first redux, 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, it’s on to the adventures of Rudolph the freakishly red-nosed reindeer, who runs away from home with his friend Hermie. The pair discover the island of misfit toys and the terrible Abominable Snowman and ultimately learn that it’s okay to be different.
