Raising Twelve on a Nickel and a Prayer

A holiday musical for the whole family. A story spanning three Christmas seasons beginning in 1950 when Betty reveals to a young sailor Harold her desire of wanting twelve children.

Raising Twelve on a Nickel and a Prayer –  a musical by Fran Powers with music/lyrics by Terez Hartmann.  A story spanning three Christmas seasons beginning in 1950 when Betty reveals to a young sailor Harold her desire of wanting twelve children. The story continues with living on a Navy paycheck, broken promises, an adventure by train cross country and the bleak Christmas of 1963 when Betty is raising children alone in a new city while Harold is at sea. The final Christmas is 1966 just before their dream could be realized, but instead they learn Betty or baby number twelve will die in childbirth. It’s a Christmas to remember.
