The Christmas Schooner


Chicago’s favorite holiday musical is based on the historic Great Lakes voyages of Christmas tree ships during the late 1800s and early 1900s. 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.
