This musical presentation of the beloved children's book, The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, is filled with the magic of the Christmas season. When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he finds himself on a journey of self-discovery and learns that the wonder of the season never fades for those who truly believe.
