All Good News, Charlie Brown
This last weekend I had the opportunity to join some friends and play Schroeder for A Charlie Brown Christmas Live! (now in it's Sixth Year) out at the Brooklyn Lyceum in Park Slope. Today, I saw this article floating around Facebook, courtesy of Mollie Vogt-Welch, actor-director-all-around-wonderful-person.
The show continues on through the weekend and you can purchase tickets here. And get them in advance, because the joint SELLS OUT. Like, we're adding seats and getting people cuddly-cozy to see this thing.
Now you may be saying to yourself, do I really want to go out to Brooklyn AND pay $10 to get in? The answer is yes, not only because you're going to have a blast like the writer of the article above, but you're also donating to charity. This year it's the Children's AIDS Fund. So, you're not only adding to your own Christmas experience, but making it a little better for someone else at the same time.
You may also be saying to yourself, you're not going to be there? No, I'll be in California building Sand Castles for Christmas instead of Snow Men, but it's cool because the cast is a always-rotating group of working actors that you may recognize from just being around town.
I had a great experience, and hope to join them again next year. But in the mean time, do yourself a favor and make time to go check out this very special show.
