Home Season History The Underground

Play by Pat Kruis Tellinghusen

December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17

This moving holiday show recreates the experience of attending a recording of a 1940s radio show broadcast on Christmas Eve during World War II. The Civic Theatre becomes a radio studio right here in Evansville, and using period songs and stories inspired by actual veterans, World War II Radio Christmas transports the audience to another time, brought to you by such generous sponsors as Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste. Appropriate for all ages, this radio-play is an inspiring look at strength in the face of hardship, and a reminder of the importance of coming together for the holidays, while remembering those who have so bravely served our country to protect our American way of life.
