A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL CELEBRATION

by Paula Vogel | Music by Daryl Waters

Directed by Karen Lund & Faith Bennett Russell

It’s a bitterly cold Christmas Eve on the banks of the Potomac River where the lives of abolitionists, assassins, soldiers, enslaved and free are woven together in an American tapestry. In their darkest hour, when peace seems impossible, the promise of Christmas breaks through despair in this musical celebration of compassion and hope by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel.
