For the first time, Cinestudio and Playhouse Theatre Group have come together to present the magic of a live performance captured on the big screen. All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 is a perfect way to bring light to a difficult holiday season. Join the (socially distanced) audience to relive an astounding true story: in a rare moment of silence on the Western Front, a soldier steps into no man’s land singing “Silent Night.” One man’s act of connection begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie between the Allied troops and German soldiers, as they lay down their arms to celebrate the holiday, share food and drink, play soccer, and sing Christmas carols. This dramatic retelling weaves together firsthand accounts of World War I soldiers with patriotic tunes, trench songs, and well-loved carols.


“When [the voices] come together, the sensation is tremendous and the musical chill effect engulfing…The show is a lesson…in music as a vehicle for emotion.”  – New York Times.
