A new holiday musical for the whole family.

Irish Theatre of Chicago Presents Parcel from America this holiday season at the IAHC.

December. West Ireland, 1950. At a time when community was the center of life and family was the center of community, a close-knit village mourns the emigration of loved ones now living “in the next parish over, across the ocean in the USA.” During the holiday season, those left behind wait for annual packages from America; boxes of gifts and letters sent with longing and love. And this Christmas, no one is more anxious than a widow and mother, who stands at her lonely cottage door, lantern in hand, awaiting the postman and dreaming of her Parcel From America.

Filled with unforgettable characters, stirring traditional melodies and beautiful original songs, Irish Theatre of Chicago is delighted to offer a concert performance of this joyous and family-friendly new Christmas musical that tells the tale of a young boy, his family, their lonely neighbor and how the joy of Christmas brings love to all.Libretto by Jahnna Beecham, Malcolm Hillgartner, and Michael J. Hume. Original Songs by Malcolm Hillgartner with additional music by Kevin Corcoran. Based on a story by Tomaseen Foley.

Parcel from America is Saturday, December 7 at 7:30pm and Sunday, December 8 at 3pm. Tickets are $25 for general admission and $20 for IAHC Members and $10 for students and children. (Recommended for ages 8 and over).
