Christmas From Home
A WWII Holiday Musical Play
The Christmas from Home series recreates a live Christmas radio show broadcast from Portland, Oregon during WWII complete with a band, sketches, singers, vintage ads and period sound effects. The blend of humor and poignancy, big band sound and true stories combine to make an evening full of great entertainment.
Christmas From Home is a five year series, beginning in 1941. The plays were written by local author Pat Kruis Tellinghusen. Step into the time machine and join us for a 1940's Christmas!
This years show will be "1943 Christmas From Home". Our show home in 2018 will be Alpenrose Dairy Opera House. The show premiere on November 30th may be in an alternate location.
