Irving Berlin's White Christmas - MLOC Stage Production

White Christmas - Prologue

MLOC presents a stage adaptation in November/December of the 1954 film White Christmas, rewritten in 2004, with seven additional songs not found in the movie and written by the composer/lyricist Irving Berlin.

The show will be presented at the Phoenix Theatre, 101 Glenhuntly Rd., Elwood with the same cast in two distinct seasons, both suitable for the Christmas period celebrations and work functions. Book your work parties early!

Contact us if you would like to make special arrangements for pre or post show drinks, food, etc.

The story tells of four friends (played by Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Allen in the film) who, as entertainers, rescue a retired Army General's post WWII holiday venture, the Columbia Inn in Pinetree, Vermont, from financial ruin because of the lack of snow.

The Berlin songs come thick and fast ... among them Let Yourself Go, Love and the Weather, Sisters, The Best Things Can Happen While You're Dancing, Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep, Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, Let Me Sing And I'm Happy, How Deep is the Ocean, I"ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm and the legendary White Christmas.

MLOC is the first company (professional or non-professional to stage White Christmas in Victoria and is most excited with the challenge of capturing the feeling of a northern hemisphere Christmas while preparing for our usual Australian hot summer months. Last year the show was staged on Broadway for the first time.
