by Patricia Bradford

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Pottstown, PA — Irving Berlin’s WHITE CHRISTMAS, one of America’s most beloved holiday musicals, takes the stage beginning Friday, December 4 through Sunday, December 20 at Steel River Playhouse. Kick off your holiday season with family and friends for a heart-warming, musical celebration!

Have you been dreaming of entertainment for the whole family that shines bright with holiday spirit? Includes singing and dancing, and throws in twists of love and life? Then make sure Steel River Playhouse and the WHITE CHRISTMAS show are at the top of your “Wish List” this year!

This classic story, adapted from the Bing Crosby-Fred Astaire film “Holiday Inn,” is put to music with wonderful performances and memorable numbers written and composed by Irving Berlin. 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 pair of beautiful singing sisters headed to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander, General Waverly. The musical makes fabulous use of an Irving Berlin score that includes “Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep),” “Blue Skies,” “Snow,” and the title song “White Christmas.”

THE CAST: Anthony Vitalo (Bob Wallace), Jerald Bennett (Phil Davis), Sharon Eyster (Betty Haynes), Kate Nice (Judy Haynes), Carl Heyde (General Henry Waverly), Barbara Hannevig (Martha), Olivia Reitz (Susan), Vince Ali (Ralph Sheldrake), Sebastian Antonio (Mike), Charles Delaney (Ezekiel), Gilliam Williams (Rita), and Courtney Boches (Rhoda). ENSEMBLE: Beverly Albertus, Charles Delaney, Mallory DeForest, Lisa Heffner, Nancy Kadwill, Christie Lohr, Emily
