Ready for a much-needed climate change?


Taking audiences back to a gentler, more peaceful time (like when The Ed Sullivan Show was brought to you, in part, by Oxydol detergent), this stage adaptation of the beloved film starring Bing Crosby tells the story of two ex-military/now-showbiz buddies in search of success and romance.


The currently-touring show features a very strong cast of triple threats including Sean Montgomery as the reserved Bob Wallace (the Bing Crosby role), Jeremy Benton as the skirt-chasing Phil Davis, along with Kerry Conte and Kelly Sheehan as singing sisters Betty and Judy Haynes respectively. On a misdirected trip originally scheduled for Miami, Florida (or in that 1950's kind of speech, hear Flahrida), the foursome finds themselves on a mitten-clad-caroler-crowded train car venturing to Vermont where they soon encounter Tony Award-winning actress Karen Ziemba as the sassy concierge Martha Watson, Conrad John Schuck as their intimidating former armed forces superior General Waverly and Makayla Joy Connolly (alternately Bella Yantis) as the general's stage-star-wannabe granddaughter Susan Waverly.



Due to an unseasonably high December heat wave, the inn-keeping general's Pine Tree Ski Lodge needs an 'angle' to attract visitors; so the guys endeavor to stage a Broadway extravaganza for Christmas Eve. Shoulder-swaying, finger-snapping dance choreography along with fresh costumes, decade-appropriate hairstyles, and structured sets bathed in cozy light make this production old-fashioned in nature yet contemporarily entertaining.


Full of toe-tapping joy, snowy surprises, and some of the greatest songs ever written (including Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep, Happy Holiday, Sisters, Blue Skies, I Love a Piano, and the unforgettable title song), Irving Berlin's White Christmas is festive holiday entertainment for the entire family. The production runs through Sunday, December 10, 2017 presented by Dallas Summer Musicals with tickets starting at just $20.
