White Christmas (theatre)

A classic-style musical with a real Christmassy feel is to be performed at the Royal Hippodrome on various dates through November, December and January. White Christmas is based on the 1954 film of the same name which famously starred Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen, and Rosemary Clooney. The Eastbourne performances are being put on by RHT Community Productions Ltd by special arrangement with Rogers and Hammerstein.

Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, two iconic song-and-dance men, follow a sister act to Vermont, only to discover that the nearly bankrupt lodge they were to perform at is owned by their former commanding general.

Royal Hippodrome, from 7th Nov
