Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake.
Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The dazzling score features well-known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas. WHITE CHRISTMAS is an uplifting musical worthy of year-round productions.
**Important Note** While there is lots of dancing in this show, tap dancing is not required. We can work with all levels of dance, so please don’t let that deter you from auditioning.
Casting calls for 12 Principal and featured characters, including a young girl (approximate stage age of 9-14), 5 males and 7 females, ranging between their early 20’s to early 60’s, as well as a talented ensemble of about 12-16 men and woman who will be very busy helping us bring this Christmas classic to life on the Springer Stage.
