About Irving Berlin's White Christmas
Irving Berlin's White Christmas
Directed by Laura Lee and Marvin Hull
White Christmas is a veritable warehouse full of oldie-but-goodie Irving Berlin tunes that are woven into the show's plotline. Bob Wallace and Phil Davis are nightclub entertainers whose plans are altered when they meet singing-sister act Betty and Judy. The men follow the sisters to Vermont, only to discover that the nearly-bankrupt lodge they were to perform at is owned by their former commanding general.
After discovering that the general is in dire financial straits, the four entertainers secretly make plans to bail the general out with a big musical show, enlisting the aid of Bob and Phil's army buddies. This heartwarming story along with classic musical numbers such as White Christmas, is a perfect way to get into the holiday spirit.
It has been a privilege to be able to bring Irving Berlin's White Christmas to the stage at The Old Barn Theatre. Irving Berlin was a master, and the result is this magical show!! I have loved this musical my whole life and was very excited when it was finally adapted for the stage in 2004. I have been watching it since I was a child, and now my children love it too. It was wonderful to work with so many family members putting this show together, including my husband and children. I want to say thank you to all those who spent so much time to make this show happen. Your time and effort has not gone unnoticed. I hope you, the audience, will enjoy our efforts and "May all your Christmases be White!"
White Christmas is sponsored by The Family of Peter D. Campbell (1952-2017) and is lovingly dedicated to his memory.
