White Christmas: The Story of the Song and the Film

December 6, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

I’m dreaming of a Whiiiite Christmasss… Iconic is a word frequently misused. But not in the case of White Christmas, one of the most truly iconic and beloved holiday songs and movies of all time.

Join John Kenrick as he gives us the behind the scenes history of both the song and the film, and takes us on a trip down Christmas Memory Lane for a delightful evening of song and dance.

This program will be held both in person and on Zoom. Email marylynn.becza@mmt.mainlib.org for the Zoom code or join us in the Library Meeting Room. Refreshments will be served.

Our presenter: Entertainment historian John Kenrick has worked in the theatre at every level from amateur to Broadway, eventually serving as personal assistant to 6 Tony Award winning producers, including the team behind the original production of Rent. He has taught musical theatre history courses at NYU, The New School, and Philadelphia’s University of the Arts. John’s books include Musical Theatre: A History, and he is featured in The Cambridge Companion to Operetta. He is the creator of the educational website Musicals101.com. One of his students put it this way: “He didn’t just make me laugh – he made me care.”
