The Greenfield Lions Club annual Christmas show, “A Night of Peace,” will be performed this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and again on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the McClain High School auditorium.
The musical drama and review embraces mankind’s universal desire for peace, exemplified by a pair of remarkable Christmas Eve incidents in the trenches of World War I and the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, where soldiers of both sides lay down their arms to celebrate together, if only for one night. Music, stories, scenes, dancing and choruses portray the America of the era, through the lively Roaring Twenties, the trials of the Great Depression and the troubling journey toward war again, where ordinary and extraordinary men and woman would be called again to sacrifice.
Tickets will be available at the door for $5 and include a souvenir program with mini-bios of celebrities of the time and historical notes. The Lions Club Christmas Candy will be on sale, offering a wide variety of seasonal treats.
