A Charlie Brown Christmas

By Charles M. Schulz
Based on the television special by Bill Melendez and Lee Mendelson stage adaptation by Eric Schaeffer by special arrangement with Arthur Whitelaw and Ruby Persson                                December 14–17, 21–23, 2017

When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees in 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.

It's a Wonderful Life

Adapted for the stage by James Rodgers,    based on the film directed by Frank Capra
Nov 30–Dec 3, 7–10, 2017

In our American culture It's a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens' A Christmas Carol. The story is a natural for a stage adaptation: the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been quashed by family obligation and civic duty, whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him—by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born—that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. This fine dramatization not only celebrates the faith of the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play, and the love and support of one's family and community.     PURCHASE TICKETS

2017–18 Season tickets

2017–18 Season Tickets are on sale now!

More than just a ticket to every show...

At Newnan Theatre Company, our season tickets are a little different. When you purchase our season ticket, you actually purchase a set number of admissions. For example, our regular season ticket is good for 10 admissions - however you wish to use them. You could attend every show in our season once and use 10 admissions, or attend five shows and bring a friend to each one (5 x 2 = 10). This system offers you total flexibility in how you use your admissions, and you never feel like you have to see every show in our season lineup, just the ones that appeal to you!

Season ticket holders enjoy discounted admission, special reserved seating (with a chocolate on your seat!), and invitations to "members only" events and performances.

As an NTC season ticket holder, you also enjoy knowing you are supporting live theatre in your community. Season Tickets are a great gift for the theatre lover in your life!
