‘I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas’
It was snowing in Manchester last night- even inside the Palace Theatre! I had a wonderful evening at the press night for Irving Berlin’s White Christmas The Musical.
White Christmas The Musical is on stage now at the Palace Theatre Manchester until Saturday 4th December 2021.
Join veterans Bob Wallace (Matthew Jeans) and Phil Davis (Dan Burton) as fuelled by love, the all singing, all dancing duo follow the stunning Haynes Sisters, Betty & Judy (Jessica Daley & Emily Langham) to a Vermont lodge for a special Christmas show. Their journey takes a misstep, and their rhythm is thrown off when they discover the lodge happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s old Army General (Duncan Smith) and is in desperate need of their help.
I was completely new to this musical, but I brought my Mother-In-Law with me as a guest and she knew most of the songs. I knew the most famous of Christmas songs White Christmas of course. It was wonderful, a really enjoyable musical to watch. Really heart-warming and perfect for this time of year.
What I loved most of all about it was the era is was set in. I loved the 1950’s clothes and the dancing! I’m a massive Strictly Come Dancing fan and there was plenty of ballroom numbers. The dancers were spectacular, the timing and unison was spot on.
A tale of love and friendship, White Christmas features the dazzling songs Blue Skies, Sisters, Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep, The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing, I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm and the most famous festive song of all, White Christmas.
Direction by Ian Talbot OBE, based on the original direction by acclaimed Curve artistic director Nikolai Foster (Annie) and two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Stephen Mear CBE (Mary Poppins).
A timeless romantic comedy to warm the hearts of all ages. Book your tickets now. White Christmas The Musical is on stage now at the Palace Theatre Manchester until Saturday 4th December 2021.
