When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

The everyman; with ever changing moods; both befriended and ostracized by all; a loser-yet-leader who is often depressed but rises out of every downfall with shining hope and determination.
Snoopy – (male or female). Charlie Brown’s pet beagle. A genuinely happy dog; full of energy, imagination and sass; known for his “happy dance” and his numerous alter-egos. Snoopy is very popular in the neighborhood. A physical, more than speaking, role: physicality and improv a must, terrible impressions a plus. Dance or movement experience required.
Linus’s older sister; bossy and a know-it-all, but very smart and a natural leader; has a crush on Schroeder; is ready to be older than her age; interests include psychiatry and real estate. Dance experience preferred.
Charlie Brown’s blanket-toting best friend; Sally’s love interest; the most insecure but the smartest of all the characters; an intellectual, a philosopher, a theologian. Slight lisp. Dance experience preferred.
The youngest of the group, with a very young sounding voice; Charlie Brown’s little sister who has a crush on Linus; is adorable and spunky but often overreacts to situations. Dance experience preferred.
A piano prodigy (this could be mimed, though ideally seeking actor with intermediate, or above, piano playing skills); Lucy’s love interest; admirer of Beethoven; Charlie Brown’s second best friend after Linus. Dance experience preferred.
Known for attracting dust, making him very filthy but with a good heart.
The girl who brags about her “naturally curly hair”; a total diva. Character voice.
Lucy and Patty’s best friend; a mean and snobby girl. Character voice. Dance experience required.
Best friend to Lucy and Violet; sometimes bullies the others. Character voice.
