The Woodland Opera House will kick off the holiday season Friday, Nov. 25, with Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas.” Underwritten by the Salonites family, this delightful musical comedy has it all — memorable songs, spectacular dance numbers and holiday charm.

Based on the 1954 movie starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, “White Christmas” tells the story of two Army buddies, Bob and Phil, who have a successful song-and-dance act after the war. With romance in mind, the two follow two singing sisters to a Christmas gig at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by their former Army commander.

The lodge has fallen on hard times — there’s no snow! — so the men decide to stage their newest Broadway revue at the resort and make a television appeal to all their Army pals to show up on Christmas Eve.

The show features classic tunes such as “Blue Skies,” “Sisters,” “Happy Holiday,” “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “I Love a Piano” and the unforgettable title song, “White Christmas.”

Scott Woodard plays crooner Bob Wallace and Matt Kohrt is his performing partner Phil Davis. Catherine Nickerson and Kirsten Myers play sisters Betty and Judy Haynes. Steve Cairns is the inn owner, Gen. Waverly; Nancy Agee plays Martha, the cheerful, but nosy inn manager; and Devon Hayakawa is the general’s granddaughter, Susan.

The show is directed by Jeff Kean with musical direction by James Glica-Hernandez. Set design is by John Bowles and costumes are by Denise Miles.

“White Christmas” will play Nov. 25 through Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, with an additional matinee performance at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 10. Free tickets to both Dec. 10 performances are available to veterans; they’re available in advance.

Reserved-seat tickets are $25 general, $23 for seniors and students and $12 for children 17 and under. Balcony tickets are $15 general and $7 for children 17 and under. Group discounts are available. For tickets, call (530) 666-9617 or visit www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
