She's all set to marry war hero Major Saranoff, but then the combat crashes through her window in the form of a soldier fighting for the opposing side.

After the war ends, both rival soldiers return for their love, and that's when the real battle for Raina's heart begins.

Since the play's debut at ACT in 1976, more than 600,000 people have joined Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and good old Ebenezer Scrooge on his harrowing journey from grumpy bah-humbugger to holiday believer. In Charles Dickens' truly timeless classic, the miserly businessman Scrooge learns the true meaning of Christmas with the help of three spirits -- the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. First published in 1873, the novella became a critical success and its story has yet to be improved upon. Directed by Kurt Beattie, this historic production has become a staple Seattle family tradition.
Before there was Hamilton, there was In the Heights. The brilliance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's new vision of American musical theater -- in all its blow-the-top-off-expectations exuberance -- is spectacularly realized in both shows. Like Hamilton, In the Heights' style is ostensibly hip-hop, but characters sing and dance to a wide variety of musical styles and moods. Energetic and infectious, the show tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. In the Heights took home four Tonys in 2008, including Best Musical. With this special pre-sale offer, you'll be sure to nab tickets to this high-energy production at Seattle Repertory Theatre.
