The whole family will enjoy this heart-warming story of the first Christmas tree ship and the family who risked their lives to fill Chicago with the Christmas spirit. This critically acclaimed musical features a powerful, moving story, and an exquisite score of original music and traditional holiday favorites. Based on the historic Great Lakes voyages of Christmas tree ships during the late 1800's and early 1900's, 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. This delightful holiday musical requires strong male talent and a sensibility for classically inspired material.
