In this lighthearted revue from creators of Your Holiday Hit Parade and It Happened One Christmas, passengers bussing home to Chicago for the holidays find themselves stuck in Iowa when a blizzard shuts down the highway. Forced to spend the night before Christmas Eve at a deserted bus depot, they make the best of a bleak situation with stories and songs while they wait out the storm together. Home for the Holidays is the perfect festive pick-me-up for weary travelers, Christmas revelers, or anyone seeking a hefty dose of Yuletide cheer.
Written by Dan Murphy and Rick Lewis with vocal arrangements by Rick Lewis, Home for the Holidays is directed and choreographed by Dan Murphy with musical direction by Wendy Vece.
