A Christmas Story for Everyone

The Forgotten Carols is a holiday season tradition that is marking its 27th year of production and will be performed in Cedar City at the Heritage Center Theater on Dec 15th. There will be both a matinee and evening performance.

The Forgotten Carols tells the story of Connie Lou and young nurse whose empty life changes because of a happenstance meeting with an elderly, and equally lonely patient. The patient known simply as Uncle John recounts the classic nativity story of Christ’s birth as told by the little-known characters in the story.

The tales from the Innkeeper, Shepherd and others help Connie Lou remember what the world has forgotten about Christmas. By the end of the show, Connie Lou has learned how to open her heart and discover the true joys of the Christmas season.

Michael McLean, a well-known performer, composer, author and director initially developed this show as a Christmas music album. He later wrote the story of Connie Lou to connect the songs all together.

Over the years the show has evolved from a one-man show starring McLean into a theatrical production and treasured holiday tradition. The Forgotten Carols is a Christmas show for the whole family that celebrates the true meaning of Christmas.

The 2018 tour will be in Cedar City at the Heritage Center Theater for two performances on Dec. 15th. For showtimes and to purchase tickets visit: www.forgottencarols.com.
