ARTfactory Rooftop Productions is bringing the holiday classic, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, to the newly named Wind River Theater at the ARTfactory. Based on the 1954 Paramount picture film of the same name, this timeless tale of joy and goodwill features music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and book by David Ives and Paul Blake.
Veterans Bob Wallace (Christopher Anderson) and Phil Davis (Alan Pierce) have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a beautiful singing duo, the Haynes sisters (Jessi Shull and Rebekah Raze) en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander, General Waverly (Scott Pierce). With a dazzling score featuring well-known standards including “Blue Skies,” “I Love A Piano,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and the perennial title song, White Christmas is an uplifting, wholesome musical that will delight audiences of all ages.Rounding out the cast are Andrew Morin, Talya Conroy, Ruby McCollum, Pam Gordet, Stephanie Blakely, Michael Gordon, Alyse Pollock, Deb Hansen, Suzette Farnum, Ricardo Padilla, Noah Nicoletti, Jason Robinson, Michaela Tinker, Julianna Gedney, Savannah Lagana, Heather Tinker, Rachel Fortin-Brito, Christine Maxted, Hilary Pierce, Charlynn Mills, Autumn Walton, Minnie Conroy, Natalie Tinker, and Katie Pierce.
