Storyteller Productions' presentation of Irving Berlin's, "White Christmas" enjoyed a crowd-pleasing opening weekend at The Colonnade, 264 Catoosa Circle, in Ringgold to kick off the holiday season.
Final weekend performances are Friday and Saturday, Nov. 18 and 19, at 7:30 p.m. and matinees are Nov. 19, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 20, at 2:30 p.m.
"White Christmas is about friendship, loyalty and love," said lead actress Laurie Shaw, portraying Betty Haynes. "It's a family-friendly show that fits the bill for a heart-warming night at the theater. The sets are breathtaking, the choreography is charming and the costumes are exquisite. Storyteller Productions has done an impeccable job transporting us to an era of lighthearted entertainment that is sure to leave an impression."
Based on the beloved and timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features 17 Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters enroute to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander.
The sizzling score features well known standards including: "Blue Skies," "I Love a Piano," "How Deep is the Ocean" and the perennial favorite "White Christmas."
Show runs approximately two hours with an intermission.
