After a SOLD OUT run last season, Lansing-based Peppermint Creek Theatre Company brings back this moving holiday event performed at venues across the state! See it on Friday, December 9 at the Detroit Historical Museum.

About the production: All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 recounts an astounding moment in history when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate Christmas together, sharing food and drink, playing soccer, singing carols and burying each other’s dead. In some places along the Western Front the truce lasted a single night, and in others it endured until New Year’s Day. This dramatic re-telling weaves together firsthand accounts by 30 World War I soldiers with music including patriotic tunes, trench songs and Christmas carols.

Performance begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free. Registration is required.
