'White Christmas' at Hedback

Footlite Musicals presents Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” Nov. 22-24 and 29-30, and Dec. 1, 5-8, and 12-15 at the Hedback Community Theater, 1847 N. Alabama St.

Curtain time for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances is 7:30 p.m., while the curtain time for the Sunday matinees is 2:30 p.m.

Admission for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances is $20 for all seats and $10 for the Thursday performances. Children 10 and younger will be admitted for $10. Footlite members receive a $5 discount of their individual ticket price. All seats are reserved, and reservations may be made by calling the Footlite box office at 926-6630 or making them online at www.footlite.org.

The 2:30 p.m. Nov. 24 performance will honor all military veterans and active duty service personnel with free admission for these individuals. Individuals taking advantage of this promotion are asked to attend in uniform or bring their military ID. Tickets for this performance may be ordered online at wcmilitary.footlite.org and choosing the “Gift Certificate” price or calling (800) 838-3006.

Based on the beloved, timeless 1954 Paramount Pictures film of the same name, “White Christmas” is a stage musical adaptation featuring 17 Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Many of the songs in the stage musical are from the movie version, along with many other Berlin classics.

Almost everyone knows the story — World War II veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis form a successful song-and-dance act, discover the Haynes Sisters, and follow them to a Vermont lodge that just happens to belong to their former Army commander. Information gets confused, information gets straightened out, and it snows. The singing and dancing score includes “Blue Skies,” “Count Your Blessings,” “I Love a Piano,” and the best selling single of all time, “White Christmas.”

Footlite’s production is directed by Bob Harbin, who is known for his musical productions through BOBDIREX such as “Spamalot,” “Cabaret,” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” “White Christmas” marks Harbin’s first time directing at Footlite.

Harbin has assembled a cast featuring Nathanael Welch as Bob Wallace, Lincoln Slentz as Phil Davis, Jessica Hawkins as Betty Haynes, Kelly Bouwman as Judy Haynes, Ken Christie as Gen. Henry Waverly, Miki Mathioudakis as Martha Watson, Samantha Grace Shelton as Susan Waverly, and an ensemble of 21 singers and dancers.
