The show tells the story, with lots of embellishment, of how Silent Night, the famous Christmas carol came into being. It takes place in an Austrian village in which the new priest, Father Josef, comes to town. Featured in the story are the crusty choir master and straight-laced housekeeper. The organ is broken - come to the play to find out how - the children's choir sounds horrible - and it is almost Christmas! The show is full of special bits, a couple love interests, a quirky organ repairman, critters in the church, and some audience participation. There are also familiar Christmas songs and dance numbers. This is all for $5/person and promises to be a wonderful family outing!
