One of America's most beloved Christmas musicals takes the stage this November as the Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company presents the sparkling new stage adaptation of Irving Berlin's White Christmas. This classic musical will play weekends at the Carson City Community Center November 6-21.
Based on the popular 1954 movie starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney, the show is about a successful song and dance team - Bob Wallace and Phil Davis - who team up with singing sisters Betty and Judy Haynes to put on a production to save the inn of their former commanding general.
The WNMTC production stars Mark Williams, Steven Meyer, Saundra Chaon Whitt and Lynne Heller. Some 40 singers and dancers complete the cast, accompanied by a 14-piece professional orchestra. Stephanie Arrigotti produces and directs; Gina Kaskie-Davis is the choreographer.
In addition to the delightful numbers that made the musical popular, Sisters and What Do You Do With a General, the show is energized by sparkling renditions of The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing, Blue Skies and I Love a Piano as well as heart-warming standards like Count Your Blessings, Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me and, of course, White Christmas.
"This is the perfect start to the holiday season," says Arrigotti. "We have an impressive cast, a stellar dance troupe and an engaging story. Audiences have been requesting this show since it was released and we are getting an enthusiastic response."
