Award-winning "Irving Berlin's White Christmas" is based on the beloved, 1954 timeless film. The Veterans Bob Wallace (Sean Montgomery) and Phil Davis (Jeremy Benton) have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters, (Kelly Sheehan and Lindsie Van Winkle), en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander. Full of dancing, romance, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written, including "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,""I Love A Piano,""Sisters," "Blue Skies," and the unforgettable title song, Irving Berlin's White Christmas promises to be a merry and bright experience for the whole family!
