Musical stars are dreaming of a White Christmas at Sheffeld's Crucible Theatre
This lively show, based on the 1954 film, tells the story of former soldiers turned successful showbiz duo Bob and Phil who are on the lookout for a new act. On meeting singing sisters Betty and Judy they are immediately smitten. When the four wind up performing a gig together at a remote ski resort, they discover that the hotel is owned by the boys’ old army commander. But the place is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to an unseasonal lack of snow. Can the talented foursome transform the lodge’s fortunes in time for Christmas? And will the snow start to fall?
The musical, which features the songs White Christmas, Sisters and Blue Skies, will be performed at the Crucible Theatre from December 9,2023 to January 13, 2024.
