Description

The Christmas Schooner

Book by John Reeger

Music and Lyrics by Julie Shannon

Co-directed by Ron Peluso and Jan Puffer

Choreographed by Jan Puffer

Music Direction by Andrew Fleser

A heart-warming musical about a German-American shipping captain and his crew who braved the icy waters of Lake Michigan to bring Tannenbäume (Christmas trees) to the immigrant families of Chicago. Heartfelt storytelling — with wonderful music and dance — captures the true spirit of the holidays, celebrating the joy of giving and the importance of sharing traditions between generations and between neighbors.
