Twin Cities Live: Behind the Scenes of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas
Twin Cities Live 12/14/16
It’s a Christmas classic. Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is full of popular holiday songs. This year’s version at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts has all sorts of talented actors who sing and dance and certainly put you in the Christmas spirit.
The crews behind the scenes are just as talented and just as busy. They are running around making sure each set changes in a matter of seconds. That also goes for all of the costume changes.
You can’t have a show with the title of White Christmas without snow. Crews have it down to a science to make sure they can make it really snow in the theater. It’s magical and timed out just right.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas runs through December 31, 2016.
