Pickerington North presents 'White Christmas, the Musical'
Pickerington North High School's theater department will present Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" Dec. 3-6.
More than 100 students are involved in the cast, crew, orchestra and house staff of the production based on the popular holiday classic movie musical starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen.
The musical will be presented at 8 p.m. Dec. 3, 4 and 5, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 5 and 6 at the high school. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for toddlers through high school students. Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling for reserved seating at (614) 830-2750.
A free senior citizen preview for those 60 and older will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 2. At that preview, seniors will be handed complimentary tickets at the door. Also at the door, other adults may purchase tickets for $10 each and children may purchase tickets for $7 each.
"White Christmas, the Musical" currently is being featured on Broadway in New York City. After leaving the Army after World War II, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters (Betty and Judy) who also have a song-and-dance act. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, is the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General.
For more information, call (614) 830-2750. The high school is located at 7800 Refugee Road, Pickerington.

i was lucky enough to be in the orchestra pit for the musical. the percussion parts i played were ridiculously hard as well as fun to play! I couldn't have asked to be part of a better group of talented actors, crew, and musicians.
