Dreaming of a perfect show

Halifax Light Opera's 'White Christmas' production
Halifax Light Opera's 'White Christmas' production

Brighouse performers will be taking a leading role in Halifax Light Opera Society’s White Christmas.

After the song “Happy Birthday”, “White Christmas” is the most popular and most performed song in the world.

The Irving Berlin ditty inspired a film of that name and in recent years that film has became a stage show.

It now tours the country in the festive season and this year it will be in Halifax.

It’s a major coup for the society and a Christmas cracker of a show that runs in the last week in November to prepare you nicely for the festive period.

Taking one of the two leading male roles is Brighouse’s Steve Redfern, while another main part goes to Clifton’s Daisy Crossley.

The show is full of Irving Berlin classic songs with which most people will be familiar and lots of music and dancing. It features such classics as “Sisters”, “Blue Skies”, “How Deep Is The Ocean”, “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm” and, of course, “White Christmas”.

The show made its debut less than ten years ago and has toured regional theatres every Christmas since. This year it opens in London, but local people can get that West End feeling with the HLOS production at a fraction of the cost – and sing along to that song.
