Based on the heartwarming classic film, Irving Berlin's White Christmas is a holiday favorite for the whole family. With a sparkling new book by David Ives and Paul Blake, the musical delight features such classic Berlin songs as "Blue Skies," "I Love a Piano," "How Deep is the Ocean" and of course the perennial holiday favorite, "White Christmas." Irving Berlin's White Christmas follows World War II veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who have a successful song-and-dance act. They follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to a Christmas stage show, and end up at the Vermont inn owned by their former army commander, General Waverly. When Bob and Phil discover the General's inn has fallen on hard times, they decide to put on a big show to draw in business. But will romance and misunderstandings stop the performance?

The cast of Irving Berlin's White Christmas includes Tommy Thurston (Bob Wallace); Jimmy Hogan (Phil Davis); Kelly Britt (Betty); Anna Marie Abbate (Judy); Alicia Berneche (Martha); Brian Rooney (General); Lea Biwer (Susan); J. Christian Hill (Ralph); Jazmine Tamayo (Rita) and Rachel Livingston (Rhoda).
