Direct from Broadway, the classic holiday tradition White Christmas comes to the stage at last. This brand-new musical shines with Irving Berlin classics, such as  “Blue Skies,” “How Deep is the Ocean?” and, of course, the unforgettable title song “White Christmas.” Irving Berlin’s White Christmas tells the story of two showbiz buddies putting on a show in a magical Vermont inn and finding their perfect mates in the bargain. Full of dancing, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas promises to be a merry and bright theatrical experience for the whole family

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his unflappable campaign to get Santa (or anyone else) to give him a Red Rider carbine-action 200-shot range-model air rifle. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus, himself, at Goldblatt’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg; his fantasy scenarios and more. This irresistible piece of Americana is guaranteed to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone.
