Show Palace Entertainment to Present IRVING BERLIN'S WHITE CHRISTMAS, 11/28-12/25
Show Palace Entertainment presents Irving Berlin'S WHITE CHRISTMAS, November 28 through December 25, 2013.
Irving Berlin'S WHITE CHRISTMAS tells the story of two showbiz buddies putting on a show in a picturesque Vermont inn, and finding their perfect mates in the bargain. Full of dancing, romance, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written, including "Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep," "Happy Holiday," "Sisters," "Blue Skies," and the unforgettable title song, Irving Berlin'S WHITE CHRISTMAS promises to be a merry and bright experience for the entire family!
Directed and Musically Directed by William Garon. ?Choreographed by Shanna Sell.
William Garon has logged more than 4500 performances in over 40 countries worldwide, and has helmed dozens of productions as director, musical director, and choreographer. However, his proudest accomplishment is his valiant fight against cancer, which he has been waging for the past year. He would like to thank everyone at the Florida Cancer Center, Morton Plant Mease, and the Shands for the excellent care and superb treatment that he has and continues to receive. He is VERY happy to be here to share this Holiday season with you. Believe!
Shanna Sell is delighted to be returning to The Show Palace! Audiences may remember her choreography from the highly acclaimed productions of The Sound of Music, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Fiddler on the Roof, Nunsense A-Men, 42nd Street, The Producers, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Sweet Charity, Annie Get Your Gun and Crazy for You. Shanna came to Florida directly from New York City and the Broadway musical CATS. She has traveled extensively throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, performing in numerous other Broadway musicals including A Chorus Line, Singin in the Rain, My One & Only, Peter Pan, and in The Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular! Shanna and her husband Chris are the proud owners of Sell's Broadway Dance Company in New Port Richey, where they teach dance instruction to students of all ages.
