The Christmas Schooner

The Christmas Schooner

Book by  John Reeger
Music and Lyrics by  Julie Shannon

Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated G


This critically acclaimed holiday treat tells the true story of a Michigan shipping captain who braves the deadly winter weather to bring Christmas trees to homesick German American families in turn-of-the-century Chicago. His voyages become a yearly tradition despite his wife's misgivings-until a fateful voyage makes her realize the true importance of his mission.

A timely and stirring tale of love and loss, THE CHRISTMAS SCHOONER reminds us of tradition, family, and responsibility. This delightful holiday musical requires strong male talent and a sensibility for classically inspired material.
