A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration

Town Hall Theatre “Generations” Season 2017-2018 celebrates this holiday season with the warm and deeply-moving musical play, A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS: An American Musical Celebration, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel, with music by Daryl Waters. A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS will have 12 performances, including two previews, November 30 through December 16, 2017, at Town Hall Theatre Company, 3535 School Street, in Lafayette, CA. Tickets are $18 - $30, and are available through the Box Office at (925) 283-1557 or online at Ms. Vogel sets her play on the bitterly cold Christmas Eve of 1864, in Washington, D.C. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plan their gift-giving, while on the banks of the frozen Potomac a young rebel soldier is captured by a Union blacksmith; nearby John Wilkes Booth hatches a plot with conspirators; and an enslaved woman and her daughter become separated on their journey to freedom. Featuring hymns and carols of the period, Ms. Vogel’s A Civil War Christmas masterfully interweaves stories of lives from both sides of the Civil War, sharing messages of compassion, good will and wishes for peace.
