The Christmas Truce of 1914
A theatrical performance with a special guest concert by Mountain Melody Women’s Chorus
Only one performance!
Pre-show champagne reception at Bank of Stockton
Performance with elegant savories and desserts served at intermission.
The Calaveras County Arts Council presents the Christmas Truce of 1914, a play by Alan Shepard about the true story of a spontaneous Christmas cease-fire during World War I. As the fighting raged, Allied and German soldiers were eager to set aside war for Christmas. They put down their guns, crossed no-man’s land, and celebrated the holiday with salutations, singing, and soccer.
Kathy Mazzaferro directs this surprising and sensitive story, with actors from Once Upon a Time Productions and live music by Mountain Melody Women’s Chorus.
