It's Christmastime in 1944. War is raging on the other side of the Atlantic and, here at home, a group of neighbors gathers at the VFW to make the most of what

they have. 1812's newest original comedy brings us an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady. The Carols is a heartfelt and hopeful musical

that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.


The Carols will be performed at Plays & Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Place
