It’s all white in Stockton

October 30, 2013 by  

The Bob Hope Theatre in Stockton will be the venue for the ‘White Christmas’ production, the date of which is coming up fast.

The story is one of a musical team, originally played by Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, becoming involved with a romantic sister act, played by Vera-Ellen and Rosemary Clooney in the original production. The four of them team up to save Vermont Inn, which is failing because of a commanding general. Irving Berlin sang the title song, ‘White Christmas’.

The Bob Hope Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historical places and features a 1,200 square foot marble mosaic floor in the lobby. Imported from Italy, the marble was designed by an artist from Canada.

Played in the Seattle Fox Theatre over four decades ago, a 1928 Robert Morton organ is preserved in the Bob Hope Theatre. The venue has 2,042 refurbished seats in red velvet, state-of-the-art sound, lights, and rigging systems. Tours are available through the Friends of the Fox.

Promoting musical productions is frequently done through flyer printing. Flyers can be distributed through direct mail or manually distributed in advance of the event. They can also be handed out at the event as souvenirs, possibly getting autographs when permissible.

White Christmas will perform on December 8 at 2:00 pm with doors opening at 1:00 p.m. Tickets range in price from $4 – $8.

More information is available through the Stockton Live website, and tickets may be purchased online as well.
