Flagler College’s Theatre Arts Department to perform “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas”
Flagler College Theatre Arts students will be performing a staged concert production of the heartwarming holiday classic “Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” from Nov. 15 to 19 in Lewis Auditorium.
Based on the classic film with a book by David Ives and Paul Blake, and music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, the story follows the adventures of two Army veterans as they make their way to a Vermont lodge to perform their song-and-dance acts for guests. The two men meet two sisters during their trip, and romance ensues.
The show will feature a live band with costuming by Flagler’s designer Elaina Wahl-Temple and a concert-style set designed by Paul Denayer. Local choreographer Kim Ball has included upbeat tap dance routines for the production.
“It’s a feel-good, family Christmas musical that we hope will be a huge community event,” Assistant Professor Kip Taisey said.
“Irving Berlin’s White Christmas” will run at Flagler College’s Lewis Auditorium, located at 14 Granada Street from Nov. 15 to 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 18 to 19 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at tickets.flagler.edu and are available now. Tickets may also be purchased directly at the box office beginning Nov. 13, Monday through Friday, 12 p.m to 5 p.m., and one hour prior to curtain. Students (non-Flagler students) with their ID may receive a discounted $5 ticket. Flagler faculty, staff and students may obtain one free ticket directly at the box office. The box office phone number is 904-826-8600.
In addition, Flagler’s student organization ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty), in conjunction with Flagler’s Office of College Relations, will be using the production as a vehicle for a toy drive to support the children of families severely impacted by Hurricane Irma. The drive will organized through Amazon.com. Those interested in contributing can visit here.
