FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Simcoe, ON (November 2, 2023) – Simcoe Little Theatre is thrilled to announce its upcoming production of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, bringing the warmth and magic of the holiday season to the heart of Simcoe. Directed by Janet Dickson, this timeless classic will be brought to life by a large cast of talented local actors and promises to be a holiday spectacle not to be missed.
White Christmas tells the heartwarming story of two Army buddies, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who become successful entertainers after World War II. Their camaraderie leads them to a chance meeting with two singing sisters, Betty and Judy Haynes, and a nostalgic journey ensues. When they end up at a Vermont inn, they discover it’s run by their beloved commanding officer, General Waverly, who is going through tough financial times. To save the inn from ruin, they hatch a plan to put on a show that will bring the whole town together and ensure a White Christmas for all!
“White Christmas will always be one of my favourite musicals. My heart warms when I think of the loyalty of these men to their General,” said Director Janet Dickson. “I laugh when Bob and Phil entertain us. I enjoy watching Judy flirt and Betty let down her guard to fall in love. Martha is a good-hearted meddler and housekeeper at the Inn, and the General’s grand-daughter Susan is ready to take on the world!”
“I hope the audience will laugh, be impressed with the talented cast, sing along at the ending and feel inspired by the integrity of the characters in the show,” she continued. “They might be surprised to see tap dancing in two of the show numbers. We are excited to be featuring members of the Lisa Naves adult tap dance class led by choreographer Teagan Davenport!”
The production will feature a talented ensemble of local actors, each bringing their unique charm to the stage. “Rehearsals are on track to be ready for a fabulous opening night November 23rd that will begin 12 shows over 3 weekends. I’m impressed with the dedication of the cast; some attending 4 rehearsals a week,” said Dickson. “The chemistry among our cast members is palpable, and their dedication to delivering a heartwarming and memorable performance is truly remarkable.”
Irving Berlin’s White Christmas will run from November 23rd to December 10th, with both matinee and evening performances at 2 PM and 7:30 PM. This schedule allows families and individuals to choose a convenient time to enjoy the show. With tickets starting at just $24, it’s an affordable way for everyone to experience the magic of the season and the magic of live theatre.
