What’s Christmas without Snow?: White Christmas at Proctors Theater

Print Friendly

White ChristmasDreaming of a White Christmas this year? Do you need a little Christmas? Then head down to Proctors Theater in Schenectady from Monday, November 22nd to Sunday, November 28th for the next installment of the Key Private Bank Broadway Series: Irving Berlin’s popular Broadway Musical, White Christmas.

White Christmas is based on the ragingly popular 1954 Paramount film starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney that featured songs written and composed by the beloved, Irving Berlin. The show features such hits as “Blueskies,” “Sisters,” “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “I Love a Piano,” and of course, who could forget, “White Christmas”?

The film version was adapted for the stage and premiered in 2004 in San Francisco; its popularity soon spread rapidly throughout the country before serenading audiences worldwide.

White Christmas follows two Army buddies, Bob and Phil, on their journey home at the end of World War II, where they meet two beautiful and musical sisters. They follow the sisters to their Christmas show at a winter lodge in the Vermont wilderness. (What’s a play without a little romance, right?) As it turns out, the lodge is owned by their former army commander. However, trouble soon arises when Bob and Phil find out how few guests are staying at the lodge because the region is lacking snow. With Christmas rapidly approaching, Bob and Phil decide to stage their newest Broadway spectacular to bring in more people. The two produce a television special to rope in various Army pals just in time for Christmas Eve. Can the men pull off this last minute extravaganza? Will their Christmas be lonely and gray as opposed to happy and white? Only Proctors Theater has the answer to this question. Don’t miss your chance to purchase tickets and help Bob and Phil create a White Christmas for their friends at the Vermont lodge!

White Christmas will be staged daily with matinees and evening performances. Proctors will be closed on Thanksgiving, but shows will continue the Friday after. On November 28th, there will be a special showing for the hearing impaired, with a sign linguist narrating the story on the side of the stage. The show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one intermission. Tickets range from $20 – $70.

For more information and tickets, call 518-346-6204.
