The Christmas Schooner

schoonerBased on the historic Great Lakes voyages of Christmas tree ships during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, The Christmas Schooner 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 bi-annual tradition at Connecticut Theatre Company, we are proud to present the show for a third time. This beautiful critically acclaimed musical fills the heart with holiday spirit and delights both young and old.

Directed by: Erin Campbell
