'A Charlie Brown Christmas' joins 'Holiday Favorites' in Joliet production


The Joliet Drama Guild takes a hiatus from its annual Madrigal Dinner to present “A Charlie Brown Christmas, and other Holiday Favorites” Dec. 15-16 at Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park & Theatre.


Based on the animated TV special of the same name by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is by Charles M. Schulz.


That’s the biggest challenge that a director of the live theatrical production faces but it’s also respecting it and letting actors do their own thing.”


Mason, who became a Joliet Drama Guild board member in summer, is working on “A Charlie Brown Christmas” with assistant director Suzanne Kaspar.


The cast includes residents of Bolingbrook, Joliet, Lockport, New Lenox, Orland Park, Plainfield, Shorewood, and St. John, Indiana.


“A Charlie Brown Christmas, and other Holiday Favorites” is capped by a short sing-along including “Frosty the Snowman,” “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.”
