We are excited to announce the 25th Anniversary of The Forgotten Carols starring Michael McLean!
The Forgotten Carols stage performance tells the story of Connie Lou, a nurse whose empty life is changed when Uncle John, a new patient she is attending, recounts the story of Christ’s birth as told by little known characters in the nativity story. The accounts from the Innkeeper, the Shepherd and others help the nurse discover what the world has forgotten about Christmas, ultimately encouraging her to open her heart to the joy of this special season.
This year's Cast
Michael McLean, Adrien Swenson, Jeff McLean, Christy Summerhays, Gili Getz, Lynne McLean (for more detailed bios on the cast, please visit www.forgottencarols.com.)

Do you have ASL interpreters for any of The Forgotten Carols shows?
In some venues, we can arrange ASL interpreters upon request. Please submit requests at least 2 weeks in advance. After that time, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate the request. For shows in venues that run more than one day, we will only select one show at which we will offer an interpreter. Please contact us at email@example.com BEFORE purchasing your tickets to be certain we can offer interpreters for the show you wish to attend.
Do you offer hearing assistance devices at any Forgotten Carols shows?
No, we do not offer these devices.
If I cannot use my ticket, can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds on ticket purchases.
If a show is cancelled by the artist due to illness or inclement weather, you will receive a refund for your ticket purchase. If the show runs but you choose not to attend because of weather conditions, you will not receive a refund. Note that shows are very rarely cancelled.
Are there discounts available for children or seniors?
We do not offer these discounts. In some cities, we may offer a HS or University student discount. The student discount is redeemed at the box office with a valid school ID. This discount is currently available for shows in Logan, UT; Ogden, UT; and Orem, UT only. Call the box office for details.
Are there group discounts for The Forgotten Carols?
Yes, we do offer a 10% discount when a patron purchases 10 tickets for the same show in one online order. If purchasing through Eventbrite, please contact the event organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code. If purchasing through the venue's ticketing site, please contact the venue's box office. (Note that the ticket site for the ASU Gammage performance limits the number of tickets you can purchase to 9 per household. So, in order to get the group discount, which they will honor, you must call the ASU Gammage box office directly.)
Will Forgotten Carols merchandise be available at the performance?
Yes, tour exclusive merchandise and selected Forgotten Carols items will be available before the show, during intermission and after the show. Note that lines are shorter before the show and the lobby opens 1 hour prior to the show start time.
