Wharton’s Monterrey Square is dressed in a delicate snowfall of
white lights signaling the holiday season has arrived. The festivities
have also ushered in a theatrical treat, Irving Berlin’s masterpiece
is coming to town and bringing with it the magic, festive songs and
holiday cheer fans know and love. White Christmas opens Friday on
the Plaza Theatre stage.
The must - see classic transports us to a post World War II America
where we follow veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis along the
route of their traveling song and dance act. The two romance minded
men find themselves entranced by a beautiful duo of singing sisters
and join the ladies for their annual engagement at a Vermont lodge.
Wallace and Davis are serendipitously stricken when they arrive
and learn the nearly bankrupt lodge is owned by none other than
their former army commander. The double duos join forces for a special
Christmas show designed to draw business and keep the inn
This uplifting musical is worthy of year-round productions on the
merit of its dazzling score that features well-known standards including,
“Blue Skies,” “I Love a Piano,” “How Deep is the Ocean” and
the classic favorite title song, “White Christmas.”
The holiday musical will run each weekend December 3 - 19,
2021. 7:30 p.m. showtime for Friday and Saturday performances
and 2:30 for Sunday matinées.
