White Christmas: Arts Club 2012by
John and I were having brunch the other day and I said how much I am looking to the holiday season — especially holiday theatre season. “Bundling up, walking down chilly streets, salted sidewalks crunching under our feet, meeting under the Stanley Theatre marquee and watching White Christmas.” He replied: “That’s such a Vancouver comment — the crunch of salt, not snow, on the sidewalks.” John has a point but regardless of whether Vancouver has snow this winter, there will be a White Christmas at the Arts Club from November 29th to December 23rd, 2012.
“Oh, Vermont should be beautiful this time of the year, with all that snow!” White Christmas is based upon the Paramount Pictures film written for the screen by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama, and Melvin Frank with Music and lyrics by Irving Berlin.
Performances will be Tuesdays at 7:30pm, Wednesdays to Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $29 to $85, inclusive of taxes and fees. Book your tickets by calling the box office at (604) 687-1644 or by making an online purchase. The Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage is located at 2750 Granville St, at 12th Ave.
I have a pair of tickets to give away to opening night, December 5, 2012. Here’s how you can enter to win:

What a way to start the holiday season!
We took our kids to this a few years ago and my son was amazed by it. Would love to go again!

Kicking off the Holiday Season with “White Christmas” would be perfect…even more so if salt is the only white stuff on our streets!
Hubby and I celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary this Christmas. Would love to add a play to our celebrations!
Yay! Looking for ways to get in the spirit this year:) This would be great.

Saw it during its first year – couldn’t stop smiling, dropped a few tears.

I always remember watching the movie White Christmas as a kid. Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye were great.
The best way to start the Holidays. Would love to see
This is my all time favourite Christmas movie.
There will never be another “Der Bingle”. Smoothest crooner ever!
My wife’s favorite Christmas show. Never get tired of this one.
What a great way to start Christmas and support the local theatre community! Merry Christmas everyone!
I have never seen White Christmas and I would love to surprise my wife with tickets. We’ve had some tough news lately and it would start off the holiday season right to see this famous production.
What a treat it would be to see this show!!
Would love to see this Christmas Classic!
What a lovely way to celebrate Christmas by seeing this wonderful show.
Tried to see this last year but it was sold out. Looking forward to seeing it this time around! 🙂
The arts club always have great productions I bet this musical will be truly great. Good luck to the winner.
Great contest. Fingers crossed that you draw my name!
I’ve seen It’s a Wonderful Life, but never White Christmas. I’d love to win.
I would love to get in the mood for Christmas with this play!!
Enjoyed the show with a friend would love to win and take my husband to see it.
working weekends for the month of December – theatre is one thing you can take in during the week to get into the spirit! Many thanks if I’m the lucky winner!
I have been watching White Christmas on TV for 40 years – my favourite! I know my lady and I would prefer to see it live – may your days be merry and bright!
Yes, the crunching of salt rather than the crunching of snow does seem to be an accurate description of the sounds of the west coast winter season. Hopefully there will be some snow this holiday to match the “White Christmas” show!
This is the best way to start the holiday season!! Good luck to everyone and may you enjoy the show to the fullest. It is a fantastic show.
I would love to take the family!
This would be so much fun!!
I try to go to this every year!
I’ve never seen this (play or movie) so would like to check it out!
I’ve been meaning to go to this for a couple of years now!
I’ve been itching to see this and with every year I want to more… hopefully it’ll happen 2012! 🙂
Great way to kick off the holiday season
Great venue to take your date – could be good!
My all your performances be BRIGHT !!
Our family’s favorite Xmas movie
Every year I say I am going to go and I end up missing it. I must make 2012 the year I finally do!
I really appreciate Irving Berlin.
