WHITE CHRISTMAS: THE MUSICAL

This production of Irving Berlin’s, WHITE CHRISTMAS: THE MUSICAL, was submitted by the theatre department at Lee’s Summit High School.

This musical is based on the same heart-warming tale that is a Christmas favorite to many. Known for its great Irving Berlin songs and overall heartwarming story, this show first made its way into our hearts through the movie, but now is also now capturing our love for it through the stage.  Lee’s Summit High School produced the stage version of “White Christmas: The Musical” on November 15-16 & 22-24 to average crowds of about 500.

This story follows Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, a popular song and dance team, as they follow a pair of beautiful sisters, Betty and Judy Haynes, to Vermont. There they discover their old World War II general who now owns and operates a ski lodge that is getting no business due to uncooperative weather. Bob and Phil decide to bring their song and dance act up to the lodge to help out the “old man” and at the same time discover their love for Betty and Judy.

THE PRODUCTION

While recreating a story that many know and love can have its challenges, this cast had a lot of fun bringing to life characters they’ve grown up watching every year at Christmas. The fun that the cast and crew had producing this show was evident as the audience, in turn, would leave with smiles on their faces and singing the songs from the show. A particularly fun aspect of this show was the moment after the bows, during the final number, when snow began to fall upon the audience, much to their amazement, producing a truly “White Christmas.”
