A Charlie Brown Christmas – Live!
F Symphony
Friday thru December 24, various times
Davies Symphony Hall

As most Peanuts fans may know this year marks the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas, which is firmly entrenched as a holiday institution. Many of us have enjoyed sitting in front of the television each and every year watching Chuck, Snoopy and the rest of the gang discover the meaning of Christmas, but most of us have never seen it live. Starting Friday, the San Francisco Symphony presents a series of unforgettable live-action performances of this holiday classic with pre-show carols and sing-alongs.

These routes and lines will get you to Davies Symphony Hall: the 21 Hayes, 47 Van Ness, 49 Mission/Van Ness, the Muni Metro Subway to Van Ness Station, or Market Street service including the F Market to Market and Van Ness.

Muni service note: No Muni service will be affected by this event.

Construction Reminders:

The Muni Metro subway continues to close early each night at 9:30pm for system upgrades. Metro bus shuttles will operate between St. Francis Circle and Market and Spears streets from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
