Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and Christmas Eve! That means it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is not only a Christmas classic but personally my favorite Christmas movie. It's none other than... White Christmas.

White Christmas stars Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis. The men met while serving in the army and because of Phil saving Bob's life they become life long friends. When Bob visits Phil in the medical tent to thank him for saving his life, he let's him know he can always come to him if he needs anything. Phil pounces on the offer and tells Bob about a song he's written. The only problem for Bob is that the song is a duet. He's a solo act.

Once the war is over, the men join forces and become a duet. Their duet takes off and they are a smashing success. They have a whole show with singing and dancing, elaborate sets and tons of extra dancers. Their lives change once they agree to see a sisters act as a favor for a friend they had in the Army. That's when they meet Judy and Betty Hanes. The sisters are finishing their performances in Florida and are headed to Vermont for the holidays. When Phil gets an idea to set Bob & Betty up he quickly thinks of a way to get them all to Vermont together. Once there they run into their old General from the war. The General has fallen on hard times. He own a ski lodge and since Vermont hasn't had any snow he's struggling financially. 

Bob and Phil decide to bring their entire show to Vermont and from there on the antics are crazy and fun. Watch this heartwarming classic and you'll soon be dreaming of a White Christmas.
