"Forgotten Carols" at Washington, D.C. Temple Visitors Center

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Press Release) -- December 26, 2001

"The Forgotten Carols," a popular holiday stage production written by and starring Grammy-Award winner Michael McLean, will be performed at The Washington, DC Temple Visitors' Center of The Church of Jesus Christ nightly at 7:00 p.m. from Wednesday, January 2 through Sunday, January 6, 2002.  The Center is located at 9900 Stoneybrook Drive, Kensington, MD.

Award-winning soprano Katie Thompson will join Michael McLean and the full cast and crew of the show. All performances are free and open to the public.

As part of the Visitors' Center celebration of the twelve days of Christmastide, the 300,000-plus red, white, and blue Christmas lights will remain illuminated on the grounds surrounding the facility.  Inside, the eighteen international and thematic Christmas trees will remain lit-up as will the Christmas creches from twenty-one countries around the world.

Please arrive early as seating is limited to the capacity of the main and auxiliary theater(s) in the Visitors' Center. Tickets for each performance will be made available the same day as the show.

This holiday favorite's tenth anniversary features new carols and new cast members. Their performance at the Visitors' Center represents their final set of performances for the 2001-2002 holiday season after having played to sold-out crowds throughout California, Arizona, New Mexico and the Intermountain West. Their Washington, DC performances represent their only shows East of the Mississippi River this year.

As a special part of their performances here in Washington, DC, the cast and crew of "The Forgotten Carols" will pay tribute to the specially-invited families of the victims of the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
