BWW Review: Belmont University Musical Theatre's WHITE CHRISTMASBWW Review: Belmont University Musical Theatre's WHITE CHRISTMAS
by Jeffrey Ellis - Dec 10, 2015

It's a tuneful, feel-good show that's certain to lift your spirits and, as performed by the BUMT cast, reaffirm your faith that the future of musical theater will be thriving for years to come.
