Irving Berlin is considered one of the most popular songwriters in the 20th century composing more than 1,500 songs and scores for musicals and films. In 1942, Berlin wrote “White Christmas” featuring Bing Crosby on vocals, which later became the highest selling tune in history. This iconic song led to the beloved film and now musical, White Christmas.

Adapted for the stage in a lavish new production that The New York Times says to “put on your wish list.” Irving Berlin's White Christmas tells the story of a song-and-dance team putting on a show in a magical Vermont inn and falling for a stunning sister act in the process. A show full of dancing, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written.

Directed and choreographed by Randy Skinner, four-time Tony Award® nominee, three-time Drama Desk Award® and four-time Outer Critics Circle Award nominee for choreography. The White Christmas cast brings spirit and talent to the stage in a musical that is as fresh as newly fallen snow.

Give everyone the gift they’re dreaming of with this merry and bright holiday musical. For more information, visit www.waltonartscenter.org.
