The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati’s annual Christmas show is part of our family’s holiday tradition. Starting with Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer 7 years ago, we haven’t missed one since and we certainly won’t be missing this one!
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the animated television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Produced by Lee Mendelson and directed by Bill Melendez, the TV program made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. This is also the year The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati brings it to the stage!
