"White Christmas"

   On stage this weekend in Ashland is the classic musical White Christmas!

   You can read more about it in this story in the Herald-Dispatch. Here's an excerpt:

Based on the wonderful and now iconic songs written by the legendary Irvin Berlin, the 1954 film starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney, George Clooney's aunt who grew up not far from the Tri-State in the Ohio River town of Maysville, Kentucky.
While a lot of classic movies back in the day started out as plays or Broadway musicals, White Christmas began as a film and was not translated into a stage production until 2004. The Paramount Players will perform the musical Irving Berlin's White Christmas at the historic Paramount Arts Center in Ashland.
Irving Berlin's White Christmas will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 19 and Saturday, Dec. 20, and a 3 p.m. matinee performance on Dec. 20. Tickets are $14.50.
The Paramount Arts Center is located at 1300 Winchester Ave., in Ashland. More information can be found at www.paramountartscenter.com and 606-324-3175.
