After ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘White Christmas’ is the most popular and most performed song in the world.
The Irving Berlin ditty inspired a film of that name and in recent years that film became a stage show.
It now tours the country in the festive season and this year it will be in Halifax thanks to Halifax Light Opera Society.
It’s a major coup for the local society and a Christmas cracker of a show that runs the last week in November (26 – 29), to prepare you nicely for the festive period.
It’s full of Irving Berlin classic songs with which most people will be familiar and lots of music and dancing. It features such classics as ‘Sisters’, ‘Blue Skies’, ‘How Deep Is The Ocean’, ‘I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm’ and, of course, ‘White Christmas.’
Taking the leading roles are Steve Redfern, Chris Stott, Catherine Rice and Amy Straw. And as winter approaches it’s sure to send you out of the theatre with a rosy glow. The show made its debut less than 10 years ago and has toured regional theatres every Christmas since.
This year it opens in London, but local people can get that West End feeling with the HLOS production at a fraction of the cost – and sing along to that song.
