Set in 1944 France, A Christmas Rose is the story of a young brother and sister who find themselves alone in an old cathedral on Christmas Eve, surrounded by many symbols of faith and love. As the children play games, comfort each other, and keep themselves occupied, the cathedral comes to life!
At first Jacques and Jeannette wonder if they are dreaming! But soon they realize that the greatest gifts of the holiday season are ALWAYS theirs to give and receive.
Come along on this playful yet moving journey and discover with Jacques and Jeannette the true meaning of giving and rediscover the spirit of family and Christmas.
This play features numerous public domain holiday songs that are sung by the characters in the play. Currently sheet music is not included with the script, but all material is widely available online from various sources.
