Photos! ‘A Civil War Christmas’


It’s Christmas Eve 1864. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plot their gift-giving. On the Potomac, a young rebel soldier challenges a Union blacksmith’s mercy. In the streets, a fugitive from slavery searches for her daughter on the night she finds freedom. In this new play with music from Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, these stories and more are woven into an American tapestry, showing us that the gladness of one’s heart is the greatest gift of all. This production includes beloved holiday music and will be enhanced by local choirs caroling before each performance.
