A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration – 12/3-12/19
By Paula Vogel
Directed by Caitlin Bouxsein

It’s 1864, and Washington, D.C. is settling down to the coldest Christmas Eve in years. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plot their gift-giving. On the banks of the Potomac, a young rebel challenges a Union blacksmith’s mercy. In the alleys downtown, a woman escaping enslavement loses her daughter just before finding freedom. This play with music by Pulitzer Prize–winner Paula Vogel intertwines many lives, showing us that the gladness of one’s heart is the best gift of all. This is an all ages show and will delight history buffs and holiday lovers alike.
