It’s Christmastime in 1943.
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 comedy with music that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.
