performance tracks for Charlie Brown Christmas?

    Does anyone know if there are still performance tracks for A Charlie Brown Christmas available.  I did this two years ago, and they had tracks that we used.  I want to do this again, but it looks on the website as if they no longer have them.  I have contacted Tams-Witmark this morning, and I know it's too early to expect an answer, but I'm panicking just a little bit as I need to have my season in this week.  They have rehearsal tracks listed, but I know usually rehearsal tracks have some sort of something recorded on them to keep them from being used for performance.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to set my mind at ease.

    We did "A Charlie Brown Christmas" this past December and I could not find tracks anywhere, which was really tough for us. Sorry that's not very helpful. I hope you can find some!

    Hi Holly,

    I know that Alley from our office contacted you this morning, but I wanted to clear this up for anyone else who might have the same question:

    Yes, performance tracks for A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS are available from Tams-Witmark! At one time, Tams had offered interactive audio software called Tams Rehearsal Aid. Based on customer feedback, we decided to discontinue that particular feature. Now, we make the audio tracks available for purchase through a digital download. We'll send you the link, which can share with your students so they can rehearse at home. The tracks are fully orchestrated with the Vince Guaraldi Trio instrumentation (piano, bass & drums) and they can be used for rehearsal and performance.

    Hope this helps make your production the Charlie Browniest!

    Best,
    Jim

    Thanks, Jim. That eases my mind a lot.  It was so popular when we did it last time, our tickets were being swapped amongst neighbors (after purchase) on the neighborhood Facebook page as we were sold out. It was amazing. And moms loved it as it is perfect for those short attention spans. So glad to hear you still have the performance tracks.
