A film musical classic celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. White Christmas premiered to the world on October 14, 1954 and has been part of the Christmas season ever since. The title song, originally sung by Bing Crosby and written by Irving Berlin was originally featured in the 1942 film musical Holiday Inn.

60 years on from the original film premiere of White Christmas, Centrestage Cymru will bring the classic musical which was made famous by the wonderful cast of Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen to the stage of Newport's Dolman Theatre.

The musical’s dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love a Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the all time favourite, White Christmas.

Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, only to discover that the nearly-bankrupt lodge they were to perform at is owned by their former commanding general.

Full of laughter, joy, nostalgia, song and dance this Newport stage premier has to be the best opening to the Christmas season possible for all the family.

Centrestage Cymru has gone from strength to strength since their first production three years ago and was extremely proud to have been awarded the NODA award for best production in their district in 2013. The company continues to grow in strength and popularity and never disappoint with their wonderful, imaginative, colourful performances of a vast array of shows. The wonderful White Christmas will be followed in 2015 by premieres of The Broadway Musical ‘The Addams Family’ and later that year the ever popular ‘Hairspray’.
