The Show

Irving Berlin’s WHITE CHRISTMAS tells the story of two ex-army pals as they team up with a pair of sisters to put on a show to save a remote Vermont ski lodge that’s fallen on hard times.

A little mischief, a few misunderstandings, and a whole lot of romance are the perfect excuse for a magical evening of laughter, tears, breathtaking dance numbers, and some of the greatest songs ever written, including Sisters, Blue Skies and, of course, the legendary White Christmas.

White Christmas was a blockbuster hit during the 2015 Christmas season with near sell outs of the last nine shows!
