About  'A Servant's Christmas'

"A Servant's Christmas" is a story about love, acceptance, and acknowledgment, a stocking stuffer full of laughter, song, dance, and a joyful musical.

In December, Monica, a young immigrant, is hired as a "Second Girl" by the Warner family on Summit Avenue in St. Paul. Mr. Warner, a devout Christian, lost his wife and the mother of his two children, and the holiday season is incredibly challenging for everyone in the family.

Monica kept a secret and worried about losing her job, which she desperately needed. She kept her true identity and Jewish ancestry hidden. The show is back in the theater after several years, and everybody is invited to witness this incredible show.
