Based on the historic Great Lakes voyages of Christmas tree ships during the late 1800s and early 1900s, The Christmas Schooner tells the true story of a Michigan shipping captain who braves the deadly winter weather to bring Christmas trees to homesick German-American families in turn-of-the-century Chicago. His voyages become a yearly tradition, despite his wife’s misgivings – until a fateful voyage makes her realize the true importance of his mission. A timely and stirring tale of love and loss, The Christmas Schooner reminds us of tradition, family, and responsibility. All ages will enjoy this musical featuring a moving story and an exquisite score of both original music and traditional holiday favorites. PLEASE NOTE- this show contains emotional content.
