Holiday classic comes to MDT stage


HILLSBORO — The last Main Stage production in Myers Dinner Theatre’s 26th anniversary season will be Irving Berlin’s White Christmas the Musical, music and lyrics by Irving Berlin and book by David Ives and Paul Blake, opening Friday with seating for dinner beginning at 6 p.m., and running through Dec. 18.

This production is being directed by Derek Martin. Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features 17 Irving Berlin songs.

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.

With a dazzling score featuring well-known standards including “Blue Skies,” “I Love A Piano,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and the perennial title song, “White Christmas.”

This musical will feature MDT alumni Don Hart, Emery Allen, Donna Schulte, DRae Beller, Tyler Bowlin, Rebecca Evans and TJ Bird. Making their MDT debut are Garrett Gagnon, Ruthie Sangster, Isaiah Hastings-Rogers, Kristina Swearingen, Cole Fletcher, Katie Kotila, Eugene Cichock and Sydney Schultis.
