Irving Berlin's White Christmas tells the story of two ex-army pals as they team up with a pair of sisters to put on a show to save their former General's remote Vermont ski lodge that's fallen on hard times. At the Dominion Theatre, an 18-piece orchestra will accompany the cast in some of musical history's best loved songs, including Let Yourself Go, Sisters, The Best Things Happen When You're Dancing, Snow, Count Your Blessings, Blue Skies, Love You Didn't Do Right By Me, How Deep Is The Ocean, I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm and, of course, the title song, White Christmas.

The stage musical is based on the Paramount Pictures timeless movie classic, written for the screen by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama & Melvin Frank, which starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooneyand Vera Ellen. The stage musical has music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake, and was originally directed on Broadway by Walter Bobbie, the director of Chicago. The musical was originally produced in the United States by The Producing Office, Inc. and BFI Productions, Inc. David Ives also wrote the Tony-nominated play Venus in Fur. Paul Blake is the producer of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.
