Set in late 1941, this is the story of a family's faith and a nation on the brink of World War II, preparing to celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace. Most of the action takes place in the main character's home, with the choir providing music and drama as it is broadcast over the family radio. The music highlights the sounds of the '40s, including swing, lush ballads, and big band songs interspersed with reenactments of radio broadcasts during that time. Original music mixed with familiar Christmas favorites form the backdrop for this memorable dramatic musical. Approximate length: 80 minutes. SATB. Moderately advanced. Drama/ Script Edition Written by Mark Hayes and Deborah Craig-Claar.

Review 1 for I'll Be Home for Christmas Drama Script Edition: A Musical about Family & Hope in the Golden Days of Radio
wonderful musical with great joy
Date:September 25, 2012
Our church did this on 2 different occasions. If you're a fan of nostalgic music and radio programs from the 40's and the patriotism that was so prevelant during WWII--you will love this play. The music is completely 40's style and just wonderful--close harmony, fun, and joyous. The storyline of waiting for a homecoming soldier is one that most of us can remember. This is my favorite play of my 62 years!!!

I performed in this play 2 years ago at First Assembly of God for Master's Commission. I loved it and it was so fun. Great Script!
