The Christmas Schooner
By Written by John Reeger, Music and Lyrics by Julie Shannon
Directed by Merlaine Angwall
Set in the late 19th century, this holiday musical tells the true story of a shipping captain who braves Lake Michigan in deadly winter weather to bring Christmas trees to homesick immigrant families in Chicago. Despite his wife's misgivings, the captain’s yearly voyages become a tradition, until a fateful event makes her realize the true importance of his mission. Based on the Rouse Simmons—The Christmas Tree Ship.
