Add a little jazz to your Christmas joy this year. Let Charlie Brown the other Peanuts characters lead you though their holiday dilemmas towards finding the true spirit of the season. The jazz is provided by the Choir and its stellar Vancouver jazzers Michael Creber and Jodi Proznick performing the songs of Vince Guaraldi and other holiday fare. The Peanuts are served up by Pippa Johnstone, Peter Carlone and John Voth – actors from Pacific Theatre. As a prelude, there will be some Renaissance Christmas madrigals and songs. And you won’t want to miss out on the tasty “Pie Carols”!
