A Charlie Brown Christmas  
Howard Conn Fine Arts Center A Charlie Brown Christmas
 
Join Charlie Brown and the entire Peanuts gang in this fun, festive show that's a holiday treat for audiences of all ages. Performed by the young artists of Youth Performance Company and featuring the music of Vince Guaraldi, A Charlie Brown Christmas brings all of your favorite characters from Charles Schulz's beloved comic strip to life on stage. Featuring a cast of talented kids, the show centers around good ol' Charlie Brown who, alarmed by the commercialism he sees all around him during the season of giving, tries to find the true meaning of Christmas.
 
   
A Christmas Story: The Musical  
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts A Christmas Story: The Musical
 
A Christmas Story: The Musical is the hilarious account of one boy's desperate quest to ensure that the one thing he wants most in the world ends up under his Christmas tree: an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. Based on the beloved 1983 holiday movie, this delightful musical comedy takes a nostalgic look back at the 1940s-era childhood holiday memories of one Ralphie Parker. With the show's funny and heartfelt songs by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, as well as a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette, young and old alike will delight in watching Ralphie's wacky family muddle through the Yuletide with heart, humor -- and one incredibly tacky leg lamp.

Snowflake Opens Jan 13  
Children's Theatre Company Snowflake
 
A broken fan is suddenly fashioned into a boomerang. A car trunk springs open into a wacky bedroom. And our stage is transformed into Snowflake’s kittywampus world, where the abandoned junk of life is reinvented by a goofy, sweet, slightly mad genius. Performed by comedic artist Gale LaJoye, Snowflake has moments that you’ll carry in your heart forever, including an unforgettable lyrical ballet performed on splintered skis. Bring your love of goofy, silly, kindhearted humor, and be ready: you’ll see your own world in a completely different light afterwards.

Children's Theatre Company The Biggest Little House in the Forest
 
Bernice the Butterfly has a bright, cheery home all to herself—or so she thinks. But then along comes Millie the Mouse, who wants to move in. Then Fred the Frog. And Bartholomew the Bear. And you! What happens next is an eruption of preschool-friendly chaos, with every kid invited to join in, unleash their imagination and run away to a land where friends pop up in the—oopsie doopsie!—most unexpected places. Expect feathers, bubbles and one squeal-worthy surprise after another, so bring your buddies and your favorite dancing shoes!
 
   
Mary Poppins Opens Feb 27  
Chanhassen Dinner Theatres Mary Poppins
 
Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, the stage musical is a fusion of various elements from the two. This is the story of the Banks family when a new nanny, Mary Poppins, arrives on their doorstep at 17 Cherry Tree Lane in London. The family finds that Mary Poppins is the answer to their prayers, but in the most unique and marvelous way. Along the journey we find that even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the very special nanny who proposes that "anything can happen if you let it."
 
   
Huck Finn Opens Mar 3  
Children's Theatre Company Huck Finn
 
Run away with rapscallions Huck and Jim, finding hijinks and history and hilarity, all wrapped up in one unbreakable friendship. Director Greg Banks (Pinocchio and Robin Hood) has thunk up some whip-smart action and crackling dialogue, with three agile, high-energy actors muscling up Mark Twain’s masterwork, transforming from character to character before your eyes. We reckon it’s ’bout the best time a “sivilized” soul can have, outside of floating down the Mississip’ on a handmade raft.

Fly to the second star to the right and straight on ’til morning—but keep an eye out for lost boys, vicious pirates and one ravenous crocodile.
