A full-length Broadway-style dramatic musical for choir and orchestra set in 1941. A captivating story which centers on a family's journey through the pain of separation during the Christmas season and in the weeks leading up to Pearl Harbor and the outbreak of World War II. The theme...hope. A comparison is drawn between the darkness of pre-World War II and that of Jesus' birth. A highly original work; musically unique, coming from two extremely creative writers (Deborah Craig-Claar and Mark Hayes), each with a background in musical theater. The choral numbers are integrated into the story line as part of radio broadcasts that show the fear of what is happening in the world at that time and yet the hope that all will be well. The music features the sounds of the big band era, and it really swings!
