Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, two iconic song-and-dance men, follow a sister act to Vermont, only to discover that the nearly-bankrupt lodge they were to perform at is owned by their former commanding officer from World War II, General Waverley.

They decide there’s only one thing to do, take their spectacular new show to the Columbia Inn and drum up some much needed business. Little do they know that they are destined to end up in a tangled romantic quartet under the mistletoe.

This sparkling stage adaptation of the classic 1954 movie features many Irving Berlin hits such as Snow, Sisters, Blue Skies, I Love A Piano and of course White Christmas. This show promises to be a merry and bright theatrical experience for everyone!
