About the show
This one-of-a-kind production is based on a World War I incident in which German and British soldiers on the Western Front laid down their arms briefly on Christmas Eve to bury their dead, exchange gifts, play soccer, and sing carols. A cast of 10 actors and singers recreates the remarkable true story of camaraderie, music, and peace through songs, poetry, letters, and authentic journal excerpts.
“It’s not only an outstanding piece of musical theater, but a brilliantly executed production that understands that its power comes from its simplicity.” – St. Paul Pioneer Press
