In keeping with 31 years of tradition, The Annoyance is pleased to present its annual Christmas Pageant featuring a family-friendly retelling of two classic holiday stories: “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” The production features a new and veteran cast directed by Chris Kervick on the MainStage at The Annoyance Theatre.
The Annoyance Christmas Pageant takes two well loved, holiday children specials and combines them into two acts. Charley Brown Christmas follows Charley Brown on his journey to find the true meaning of Christmas, while enduring the commercialization of the season, and insults from Lucy Van Pelt. In Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, Sam the Snowman tells the tale of how young reindeer Rudolph runs away from home to be independent, with his new found friend Hermie. Together they meet Yukon Cornelius, a prospector searching for silver and gold, discover an island of misfit toys and learn that it’s okay to be different from the pack. All while avoiding the Abominable Snow Monster of the North!
