"Irving Berlin's White Christmas" will be playing at the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati through December 6th. Attending this production is by far the most spectacular way to to kick-off the holiday season!

Set in the time immediately after World War II, this beloved holiday tradition follows the adventures of two GI's who make a smash in the musical world.  Through a series of events, they travel to a lodge in Vermont for Christmas, where they team up with a sister act to spread holiday cheer to the ones who need it the most. As they impatiently wait for the snow to fall, they find that romance may just be what's in the air.

This mesmerizing tale includes wonderful performances of "Love And The Weather", "Sisters", "Blue Skies", "Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep" and of course, "White Christmas".  This production is all about HUGE song and dance numbers, so be ready to tap your toes and give standing ovations!

With music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, this spectacular production is under the direction of Norb Joerder, with choreography by Randy Skinner. 

The cast includes Sean Montgomery, Jeremy Benton, Kerry Conte, Kelly Sheehan, Conrad John Schuck, Pamela Myers, Samantha Penny, and many more!

Montgomery and Conte are purely electric as the memorable Bob Wallace and Betty Haynes. With a wonderful on-stage rhythm, they argue, laugh, and love their way right into the hearts of the audience.

A stand-out in this performance is Samantha Penny in the young role of Susan. Her rendition of "Let Me Sing And I'm Happy" is packed with charisma and confidence, bringing the crowd to boisterous applause.

And speaking of applause, the ground nearly shakes after the phenomenal "I Love A Piano". Sheehan and Benton have unbelievable chemistry, as they take this beloved number to new heights.

If you see one holiday show this season, let it be "Irving Berlin's White Christmas"!
