The German American Heritage Center will host a trip to Chicago’s Mercury Theater on Saturday, Dec. 8, to see the musical “The Christmas Schooner” and also visit Christkindlmart.

Tickets are $100 for center members and $110 for nonmembers. Call 563-322-8844 to reserve a spot.

The play is based on a beloved Chicago story of love and loss. The Rouse Simmons, a Great Lakes schooner, was known as “The Christmas Tree Ship,” transporting fir trees from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Chicago’s German immigrants during the late 19th century.
