A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration in Storrs
November 29, 2018 - December 9, 2018
A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration by Paula Vogel is set for November 29 through December 9th at Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre in Storrs, Connecticut.
Christmas, 1864. With the nation at war, it is not a silent night. All is not peaceful or bright. On one side of the Potomic, an escaped slave hurries her daughter toward the capital and freedom. On the other side, a young Confederate runs away from home with hopes of joining the fight. In the capital, Mrs. Lincoln is in desperate need of the perfect gift for her husband Abe. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel creates a historical and musical masterpiece in A Civil War Christmas, one that is uniquely American. In the shadow of our own partisan divide, can the nation put aside its differences and share in the hope and generosity the Christmas season has to offer, and the promise of Christmas future?
