“There are a great many holiday shows to choose from, but the importance of continuing THE CHRISTMAS SCHOONER is too great, not only to us personally but to the families who have made us part of their holiday tradition each year,” comments Stearns. “This show is a holiday slice of Chicago history…a story of immigrants sharing their family traditions. It seems we need that reminder this year more than ever”
