White Christmas

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Saturday, December 23 for a night of Christmas cheer…. and fear!

See one, or see ’em both for one sweet price!!

In beloved musical WHITE CHRISTMAS, icons Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye star as veteran singers Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who join up with the sister act of Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy Haynes (Vera-Ellen) to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont. There, they run into the boys’ former WW2 commander who, they learn, is having financial difficulties – his quaint country inn is failing.
