THE FORGOTTEN CAROLS
"The Forgotten Carols" is a Christmas concert for the whole family with songs written by and starring Michael McLean. Start the season off right with a beautiful story of the true meaning of Christmas. Enjoy a night of wonderful music and the spirit of the holidays! It's the story of Constance, a rigid yet competent nurse, too practical to be bothered by Christmas. She is assigned to care for an aged gentleman with alleged psychiatric tendencies over the holiday season. But this unlikely patient, John, is nothing like the senile "crazy" she expected. With warmth and spunky kindness, John eventually breaks through Constance's iron-clad exterior as he walks her through the untold carols of the more "forgotten" characters in the Christmas story and guides the young nurse to the Christmas carol waiting to be sung inside her own heart.
