the Ozark Arts Council Present:
December 1–3 at 7pm, December 4 at 2pm! #LiveAtTheLyric!
NorthArk Drama, HHS Theatre Troupe 2715, and The Ozark Arts Council present White Christmas performed at the Historic 1929 Lyric Theater December 1–3 at 7:00pm and December 4 at 2:00PM. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, and $12 for children, when bought in advance; prices rise $3 if purchased at the door—$15 for children, $18 for seniors and students, and $21 for adults. Veterans and Active Duty Service Members receive a discount by choosing the Veteran discount ticket.
Veterans Bob Wallace (Bannon Jones) and Phil Davis (Isaiah Wallis) have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters, Betty (Maci Bright, understudy Savana Tolbert) and Judy (Brinkley Brewer, understudy Ella Domino) Haynes en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander, Henry Waverly (Matt Hamblin). Though the General is retired, he must now contend with a failing inn, a has-been-but-still-aspiring actress, Martha (Jenna Wilson), and his precocious granddaughter, Susan (Allyson Hyatt). When Bob and Phil decide to bring their whole crew down to help the General out with a huge Christmas show, new romances will begin, old friendships will be rekindled, and everyone will learn that sometimes, things really can be fixed with a little Theatre in your life. Ensemble cast includes both veteran and novice students of Theatre: Malachi Baker, Jude Bilbee, Emma Bock, Angie Briggs, Valeria Carbajal, Camron Edwards, Lashayla Engel, Lilly Mangrum, Melissa Mao, Tracy Mao, Kamyron Lefebvre, Wyatt Mahoney, Brycen Myers, Andi Jo Parrish, Lexi Poor, Chasity Price, Natalie Sims, Eric Stubbs, Logan Wilson, Karma Wooten, and Rilee Young.
For those who love the movie, the play will give you a double treat, because of the sub-plots and character development, plus the greater involvement of beloved-but-minor characters (especially Susan and Martha!). With a dazzling score featuring well-known standards including “Blue Skies,” “How Deep Is the Ocean” and the perennial title song, White Christmas is an uplifting musical that will surely get you in the holiday spirit!
