The Firehouse Theatre Announces Holiday 2018 Show
The Firehouse Theatre is thrilled to announce Irving Berlin's WHITE CHRISTMAS as the final show of their 2018 season, with opening night scheduled for Friday, November 30th and performances running through Sunday, December 16th, 2018. BroadwayWorld.com Senior Editor Kyle Christopher West is set to direct and choreograph the holiday musical, with John Norine Jr. serving as musical director.
WHITE CHRISTMAS is the Broadway musical adaptation of the famous 1954 Paramount Pictures film, which starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. Featuring songs like "Happy Holidays," "Sisters," "Count Your Blessings," "I Love a Piano," and the winter anthem "White Christmas", this is the story of World War II veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who take their song-and-dance duo on the road to a Vermont Lodge, which happens to be owned by their former army commander. On the way, Bob and Phil meet Judy and Betty Haynes; a stunning pair or sisters with a song and dance act of their own, and the four joins forces to stage an unforgettable show in hopes of saving the commander's struggling business. Showgirls, snow, and tap dances fill the stage in this dazzling Christmas spectacle.
Auditions for WHITE CHRISTMAS are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, October 5th and 6th, with callbacks on Sunday, October 7th. Auditionees will be asked to prepare 16 bars of a standard musical theatre song, and audition appointment requests will be accepted starting in September. Rehearsals are tentatively set to begin on Monday, October 22nd with the majority of rehearsals spanning Monday-Thursday evening and Saturday mornings (Friday and Sunday rehearsals may be added closer to opening night). WHITE CHRISTMAS features 10 roles for women, 10 roles for men, plus one featured young female.
