Event description
This season, we invite you to join us for this beautifully re-imagined telling of Michael McLean’s holiday tradition THE FORGOTTEN CAROLS.

About this Event

"I’ve been telling the story of THE FORGOTTEN CAROLS for 28 years…and I’m changing it. I believe I have to. I gotta say, I don’t know HOW it’s possible to tell the same story so differently and have it feel MORE familiar than ever…but that’s what’s happened and I hope you can come this year and experience with me THE FORGOTTEN CAROLS Re-Imagined."

-- Michael McLean


Touring since 1991, this timeless Christmas tradition brings to life the story of Constance Louise Chamberlain, a nurse who hasn’t laughed or cried in over 30 years. But that all changes when she meets, and cares for, a homeless man with dementia (Uncle John, as he likes to be called) who insists he’s been alive for over two thousand years. Uncle John recounts the story of Christ’s birth through these Forgotten Carols sung from the perspective of his “friends” the Inn Keeper, a Shepherd, Handel and others, taking Connie Lou on a life-altering journey. As Uncle John struggles to remember all the reasons why he feels compelled to share these unknown carols with his nurse, she discovers what her heart has forgotten about the true power and meaning of Christmas!

Important Venue Specific Information - Cottonwood High School

Are there elevators in Cottonwood High School?

  • There are NO elevators in this venue. If you are purchasing tickets in the balcony, you must be able to walk up several flights of stairs to get to the balcony and then walk the stairs to your seat. Please be sure that all members of your party are physically able to walk up the stairs.

Are there wheelchair accessible ramps?

  • Yes, coming in to the lobby from the bank of glass doors in the center of the building (whether parking and entering from the north or from the south parking lots) there is a ramp down to the lobby and then another wheelchair ramp on the west end of the auditorium.

Where should I park and enter the building?

  • The best place to park is on the north side of the building and enter in the bank of glass doors in the center of the building. You can also park on the south side and enter in the bank of glass doors in the center of the building.

Frequently Asked Questions

What time do the doors open?

  • Doors into the auditorium will open 30 minutes prior to show time. Doors to the lobby, the box office and merchandise sales will open 1 hour prior to show time.

How long is the show?

  • 2 hours and 20 minutes with intermission.

Can I bring my nursing baby or young child to the show?

  • The Forgotten Carols is recommended for ages 5 and older. If you choose to bring a slightly younger child, each person entering the hall must have a ticket. No children 2 and under, including babes-in-arms, will be allowed. In year’s past, the “no babes-in-arms” rule has not been strictly enforced. However, due to complaints, and more importantly, in order to provide a favorable experience for all attendees, we will be strictly enforcing this policy. Please make arrangements to leave all children 2 and under at home. And, please consider the ability of a 3 or 4-year-old to quietly enjoy the show before purchasing a ticket for him/her. We want The Forgotten Carols to be a family event, when the time is right for our young friends to join.

Will Michael McLean be signing after the show?

  • Unfortunately, no. To ensure the good health of Michael McLean during a long and rigorous tour, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the after-show signings. Doing so will allow Michael to continue to bring the Forgotten Carols to as many cities as possible each Christmas season.

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 via email 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 can not use my ticket, can I get a refund?

  • We do not offer refunds on ticket purchases. You are welcome to transfer your ticket to another person.
  • 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, however, runs as scheduled and 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, military or seniors?

  • There are no military, senior or child discounts for The Forgotten Carols. Only group discounts.

Are there group discounts for The Forgotten Carols?

  • Yes, there is a group discount rate of 15% off the ticket prices when a patron purchases 10 or more tickets for the same show in one online order. Please contact the event organizer at grouptickets@forgottencarols.com for the discount code BEFORE you process your online order on Eventbrite.

Will Forgotten Carols merchandise be available at the performance?

  • Yes, tour exclusive merchandise and select 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.

How can I receive behind the scenes information?

  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to receive information on contests and behind the scenes information.

How do I contact The Forgotten Carols Customer Service Team?

  • You may either email us at tickets@forgottencarols.com OR you may call by dialing 385-301-6697. Please remember that we have a very small Customer Service team, with minimal and varied hours. If you will send your email or leave a voice mail, someone from our team will get back to you within 24 hours (excluding Saturdays and Sundays). Your business is important to us and we will make every effort to get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience with our team and thank you for your support of The Forgotten Carols!
