Based on the classic film, this joyous musical features thrilling dance numbers, laugh-out-loud comedy and a parade of hit Irving Berlin songs. This year-round romance is sure to delight audiences!

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 en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former army commander. WHITE CHRISTMAS is an uplifting musical worthy of year-round productions.

Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin. Original Book by Herbert Fields and Dorothy Fields. As Revised by Peter Stone.
Full Length Musical, Comedy, 19th Century
CASTING: 7M, 5F

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN scored a bulls-eye when it returned to Broadway in 1999 sporting a revised libretto by Tony, Oscar and Emmy-winner Peter Stone. Stone reshaped the 1946 book to create a Wild West show-within-a-show that frames the ageless 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better' love story of sharpshooters Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Joined to the new book, of course, is that amazing Irving Berlin score, featuring hit after hit after hit.

Ambassador Sally Adams, with slim credentials, is sent off to administer in the tiny duchy of Lichtenburg. It's not long before her down-to-earth, typically undiplomatic manner has surprised and charmed the local gentry, especially the handsome Prime Minister. A second romance is blossoming between her young Ivy League aid and Lichtenburg's enchanting young Princess. The course of love is threatened by the stuffy opposition, who eventually succeed in wrangling Sally's recall, but not before all has resolved happily for both pairs of lovers.
WINNER! 3 Tony Awards including Best Original Score (1951)

Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin. Book by Morrie Ryskind.
Full Length Musical, Comedy, 1940s / WWII
CASTING: 10M, 6F

The plot machinations of this 1940 hit musical could have been ripped from today's headlines. Set in New Orleans, the musical lampoons Huey Long and his stronghold on Louisiana politics. When Senator Loganberry arrives in the Big Easy to investigate the dubious doings at the Louisiana Purchasing Company, it isn't long before he's set up for plenty of scandal himself.
