The Great Pumpkin has come and gone. Now, it's time for the big guy.

Each year, thousands of people watch A Charlie Brown Christmas on their couch. The little Peanuts tree has become iconic! But this weekend, you can see the special really come to life on stage at Bettendorf High School. There will be performances on December 14th and 15th.

On top of the performances, there will be family events open to the public. Prior to the show on Friday, there will be a pajama party with cookies and hot cocoa. On Saturday, you can bring the kids to get crafty at Santa's workshop, and even take home their creations!

For kids interested in learning more about theatre, there will be a behind-the-scenes workshop for elementary school students before the Saturday 3 p.m. performance. There will be a $30 admission for that part.

As for the show itself, tickets are just $6 general admission.
