If you are dreaming of a white Christmas, you can do more than just hum that oh-so-hummable tune.
The Arkansas Repertory Theatre has chosen White Christmas — a musical adaptation of a classic Paramount Pictures movie of the same name, complete with Irving Berlin songs, including “Blue Skies,” “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” and, naturally, the title song — as its holiday show, Jack W. Hill writes in Thursday’s Arkansas Weekend section.
“I saw this show nine or 10 years ago in New York alongside Irving Berlin’s granddaughters,” says director Nicole Capri, the director and choreographer of the play and the Rep’s resident director and director of education.
“At the time I thought the show was too big, but since then I guess I’ve gotten used to doing shows with lots of folks in our young people’s workshops and productions."
