With charlie Brown

Last night we went to the Boch Center Shubert Theatre to see A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage. We were given press passes to attend the performance in order to review it. The show is at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre for a very limited engagement. In fact, tomorrow December 2 is the last day that the show will be there.

The tickets are also inexpensive to see this show so it is a good family Christmas event.
