Share this Post on our fantastic new show All is Calm – for a chance to win tickets

All is CalmWe are so excited about our upcoming show All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914. We are asking you to help us spread the word.

It’s a heartwarming story of Christmas on the battlefield in 1914. Set on the Western Front during World War I when the when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together: trading carols, sharing food and drink, playing soccer and gathering their dead – an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music and peace. In some places the truce lasted only a night, in others it endured until New Year’s Day. This dramatic re-telling contains poetry, diary entries, war documents and letters written by thirty World War I figures brought to life by 12 actors and singers. The historic documents are interspersed with iconic World War I songs and European carols. The Star Tribune calls All Is Calm “a classic to be repeated for years to come.”

Share this post on Facebook for a chance to win tickets to the show. We’ll draw the name on Sunday November 29 – please share by noon on Sunday to qualify.

One note – it’s reserved seating for the show. Get your order in early to choose the seat you want!
