Based Upon The Paramount Pictures Film, Written For The Screen By Norman Krasna, Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, Music and Lyrics By Irving Berlin, Book By David Ives And Paul Blake

"Just like the ones you used to know..."

You’ll want to snuggle up with the entire family for this funny and heartwarming musical adaptation of the popular Paramount Pictures classic film!


When a pair of song and dance men follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters to their Christmas show at a Vermont inn, they realize a lack of seasonal precipitation is causing hard times.

Through delightful plot twists and a dazzling Irving Berlin score that includes “Blue Skies,” “I Love a Piano,” “Happy Holiday,” “It’s Cold Outside” and of course, “White Christmas,” the fellows launch an all-out campaign to save the inn and win the sisters’ hearts.


"White Christmas
is the perfect holiday musical,” says Hupp. “It’s a trip down memory lane for those who remember the music and the movie, and it’s sure to inspire new appreciation for the timeless songs of Irving Berlin – one of America’s greatest composers – for younger generations.”
