REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

The Christmas season prompts nostalgia and a craving for a hearty, old-fashioned story: one with romance, heroes, and good-natured mischief.

Bonny GableFreelance Writer

I was absolutely thrilled, moving in such a wide range of emotions, from out right belly laughs to tears. What a wonderful rendition of a timeless Christmas must see. From beginning to the end; as I said, I laughed, I cried, I sang the timeless Irving Berlin songs in my heart, what a joyful night to spend the night with my daughter.

Patron Comment

White Christmas would not have been a complete show without the famous show-stopping number “I Love A Piano,” choreographed and starred by Andrew Hampton Livingston. His tap-dancing is second to none. Hannah Ingram is also in top-notch vocal form as she reprises the role of Betty Haynes, particularly when “Love, You Didn't Do Right By Me.” The chemistry and banter between her character and Campos is of particular note.
