"After many years of watching the original movie White Christmas, I couldn't help but compare lead male singers with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, but as the show progressed that went out the door. I thoroughly enjoyed this musical, especially the interaction between the cast and the audience - including the participation aspect. What a wonderful experience – well-acted. The sets were terrific, which often times can disappoint when making comparisons. Great job - well done"
"The White Christmas production at the Arts Club's Stanley theatre easily equals or surpasses any production we've seen in Toronto and New York. The sets, dancing, beautiful singing, top notch performers and stage direction all contributed to a very professional and entertaining show. Thank you to all"
—Loren and Cathy
"I had a wonderful time at White Christmas this past weekend. The props were great, especially the end scene when the barn doors were opened and it was snowing! Lovely. Thank You"
"We both loved it!"
"It was GREAT! I believe I liked it better than the movie - with the other added songs and great tap dancing too! Made me want to join a class to learn. I hope you continue to do this performance every year and I really loved the venue - every seat in the house is a good one!"
—Patty, North Vancouver
"I had a lovely time attending White Christmas last night. From the beginning I had excellent service, as the person who I had purchased a ticket to go with me could not attend, and the woman at the box office was very kind and gave me the amount back in gift certificate form. You can bet that I will be using that in the near future, and will spread the word about how awesome you all are. As for the production, it was phenomenal. White Christmas is a movie that I was brought up on so being able to see it on stage was a great treat, especially because it was done so well. Everyone who I interacted with was kind, and upbeat which made this for a very pleasant evening. Thank you very much for having me, and for having the Student Rush tickets, I will be back again!"
"It was delightful, fun, enjoyable and even moving. Thank you for the wondrous evening. I also loved the reminder emails I received before the evening"
"Loved it! I've seen it 2 years in a row now. The music, singing, acting and dancing was all so professional and so entertaining. I will see it again next year! Such a fantastic show!!! Well done! Thank you :)"
"What a lovely way to celebrate the season. Wonderful production and beautiful voices. I will be humming the tunes for days!"
"I can think of no better way to get in the holiday spirit than to see White Christmas at the Stanley. Great production and talented cast"
"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this production! Wonderfully talented cast with fantastic sets and costumes! Brilliant orchestra and always a great seat at the Stanley! Thank you for helping us start off Christmas with a big smile on our faces!"
"Went to see White Christmas Sunday Dec 16 and had a wonderful time. It is my husband’s favorite Christmas tradition to watch the movie every year so we decided to see it "live." All the singing and dancing were superb!! Thanks for a great show"
"Everything about the production was fabulous. It was sooo good. We really enjoyed the afternoon, even to tears at the end. Just Great!"
"Wonderful Evening. Great energy and amazing performances. Brought my parents. My dad who is 81 remembers going to the Stanley to see matinees as a young person. The evening brought back great memories and created some new ones. Thanks"
—Sharon, New Westminster
"Excellent show! Loved it!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed the production. The actors were spot-on and the singing was fabulous—a great way to enjoy some Christmas entertainment"

"Absolutely fabulous production! Was our 2nd time, and will be seeing again! The dancing and singing is 'Broadway' material. Thank you for putting the Spirit of Christmas in your audience's hearts on Saturday evening, Dec. 8th. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL :)"
"I have seen the movie countless times and this is my 2nd year at the Stanley production. I wondered if I needed to see it again—the answer is yes. It is the perfect way to get me in the Christmas spirit. When the snow starts to fall so do the tears. It evokes precious memories of Christmases past. What a talented cast. It was a special evening with my children (39 and 32). So we will see you next year with even more of my family!!!"
—Theresa, North Vancouver
"My daughter, new son-in-law, and husband attended with me and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was not at all what we were expecting and all were pleasantly surprised. The performers did a marvelous job. I heard pieces that I hadn't heard since singing them with my parents. Don' cha just love Irving! We are hoping to see it again next year and will most likely include It's A Wonderful Life as well. What a great way to get in the Christmas mood!"
"We had such a fun time! Laughing, singing and even a tear or two. Definitely got us into the Christmas spirit. The Stanley is the perfect venue to see this type of production"
"Wonderful musical in a small theatre full of character. The sets are beautiful. I couldn't help smiling as the actors enthusiasm was catchy. Just a lovely evening out!"
"A wonderful way to start the holiday season!"
"What a wonderful way to jump into the Christmas spirit! We have seen it 3 times and it just gets better each time. Happy holidays!"
"This show fits the Christmas season like an easy chair with a tickle feather! It is timeless, comfortable in all age groups and very entertaining family fun. The production and performers are of considerable quality. A very pleasing gift to the season and maybe your friends or family too! Happy Holidays Vermont! I mean, Vancouver. Happy Holidays and thank you to all in the White Christmas Musical. My family loved it and so did I!"
"We had an awesome time. I will surely enjoy more to come in the future."
"White Christmas is my wife’s favourite Christmas movie so to start this Christmas season off I decided to buy tickets for the show. We were expecting a decent production and I wondered how it would go from the movie to the stage. WOW, did you ever nail it. Excellent vocals, excellent dance numbers and we were blown away by the theatre and the entire production. I think I recommended the show to a couple of dozen people just today. We look forward to returning to other Arts Club productions"
"A great start to the Christmas season. We had the whole family out to this musical. By the end of the night, we were all singing Christmas carols and had thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. On the way home, the teenagers began a discussion about what it is like for those soldiers who are away at Christmas. Great time!"
"If I had one show that I could recommend over the Christmas season to get you into the festive mood it would be by far the production of "White Christmas." The cast selection could not have been better and the show itself was beyond amazing. It was a perfect way to begin my favorite time of the year"
"Amazing. First time at your theatre. It won’t be the last"
—Kim, Port Moody
"My husband, kids, and mother-in-law saw the show yesterday and we all loved it. It was heart-warming and upbeat. The actors' energy level as well as their singing and dancing talents was excellent. I can't think of any way to improve on the show!"
—Susan, Port Coquitlam
"This is the second time we have seen the play and is as good as the first. The costume and sets are beautiful, the cast was wonderful and the singing and dancing was amazing. Such a wonderful play to get into the Christmas mood. It is a must-see for the season and we plan to see it every year if they have it on"
"Love! Love! Love! White Christmas. It is our yearly Christmas tradition to see this play at the Stanley. Thank you to the cast for a superb performance each and every year"
"Attended the matinee with my husband and two friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the production. Great cast, terrific voices, and they all seemed to be having such a great time. Have recommended it to others"
—Helen, West Vancouver
"A walk into the past at such a time of year when nostalgia abounds...enjoyed the feeling that we were really involved in the musical by singing and being ‘the audience’. Thanks and congratulations–hope White Christmas will see another 100 performances!"
"We attended White Christmas Thursday with family who were out from Ontario. They thoroughly enjoyed the performance as did we. This is our third year of watching White Christmas and it was just as good as the other ones we have seen. Thank you to all who make White Christmas such a wonderful performance; sets the tone for our own Christmas"
—Brenda and Jacqueline, Abbotsford
"Just saw White Christmas last night...Amazing"
"I laughed, I chuckled, I sang, and I found myself smiling almost the entire time. It was the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit and it was a great way to spend a Friday night"
"This performance was a 10 star performance! We have seen this show many times and each year appreciate it more! The actors' singing and dancing, along with their energy, humor, and vibrancy, make an entertaining evening for everyone! Thank you to each one of the actors who performed an outstanding musical to give the audience an early Christmas gift. Merry Christmas!"
—Linda, West Vancouver
"White Christmas was wonderful...a great way to start off the holidays!"
"This was an absolutely wonderful, multi-generational experience! Everyone should come and see this! From the theatre staff to the amazing cast, we felt like we were treated to something very special!"
"A great show. The cast is very talented–I really enjoyed the tap dancing! Seeing this show has become a Christmas tradition!"
"This show really put me in the Christmas spirit. Great acting, dancing, singing, costumes, set changes, and the 4 main stars were excellent"
"Absolutely LOVED it!! This was my third year in a row to have the privilege to see this excellent musical (and White Christmas is my all-time favorite Christmas movie) and I think that this production was the best yet!"
"White Christmas was really stunning this year. Thanks for all the holiday cheer!"
"By far one of the best quality productions I have seen at the Arts Club! The two male leads were superb in their performances. Todd Talbot was witty and played the comic role brilliantly, while Jeffrey Victor captured the style and vocal nuance of that era. I was in attendance for the 100 performance. I will be at the 200th as well!"
"Very, very enjoyable! Uplifting and if you were not in a Christmas mood yet, the show certainly put you right in it. You could feel the energy of the performers and the chemistry between the characters. This was our second time to see this musical, and it will likely become an annual tradition. Thank you for bringing the show every Christmas season"
"This is my second year to attend this performance, and this year I took my whole family. We all enjoyed the musical, the actors and the costumes are first-rate. It’s a must-see musical, it makes you believe in Christmas again. Well done!!!!!"
"The performers were fantastic. The musical was as close to the movie as possible. The singing was great. The actors were soooo believable. The group of 8 that went together, had a fantastic time and would highly recommend the show to everyone. Thank you for the fantastic performance. Will gladly see this again next year if it is here"
"White Christmas was fabulous!! I faithfully watch the movie every year at Christmas and was not at all disappointed by the play. Some things were slightly different but for the most part held true to the story. Will go again next year. The singing and dancing were top notch"
"We went to White Christmas last night, with slightly pessimistic anticipation. Being able to quote the movie verbatim as we watch, I wasn't sure a live production could hold a candle to such a classic. Call the fire department. That was a thousand candle performance. Now I understand why it's running every Christmas at the Stanley. Well done!"
"Our second time seeing White Christmas was at the 100th performance at the Stanley. It was as fresh as the first time we attended–last year. Many of the performers had been in all 100 shows and it looked like they were all having so much fun especially during the fast-moving tap dancing numbers. Irving Berlin's music makes this such a classic. White Christmas is so engaging and when the tears start rolling down my face I know I have been moved. Congratulations!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed the musical White Christmas. The cast put heart and soul into this production. The costumes, the staging were all terrific ... a must see! My friend agrees with me"
"Spectacular! The entire production was first rate! The snow scenes were amazing. The actors invited the audience to participate which was a highlight. We enjoyed all the sets and the spirit-filled atmosphere in the theatre was contagious"
"Fantastic performance of White Christmas on Saturday evening. The musical orchestration and timing along with the harmonies and sound quality was simply impeccable. The dance routines were spot on, especially the tap numbers! Congratulations to everyone from cast to lighting to sound to art direction and last but never least, the orchestra, who’s solid, perfectly-timed performance filled the theatre with the musical ambiance and the joy of the festive season!"
"The play was superb. The singing was awesome and the acting stupendous. I am definitely getting tickets if it comes back next year… White Christmas is my all time favourite Christmas show and the cast did it justice...Thank you so much…"
"I attended the Sunday performance with a friend & we both loved it, loved it, loved it... I have seen the movie many times & I was surprised how much of the story you were able to include in the musical. The performance brought a little bit of the magic of Christmas that is sometimes difficult to come by early in December, thank you"
"It's an amazing show–a show that one could see more than once! It's colorful, energetic, magical, timeless, super-entertaining, and it's for all ages. Superbly casted! Well done everyone!"
"This is our second time seeing this production and it is really wonderful. The singing, acting, dancing, costumes, and sets really make for a enjoyable evening at the theatre. If you don't feel Christmassy before this show, you sure will afterward. I'm confident this will become a yearly tradition for many"
"The best value and entertainment in the City. Fantastic wardrobe, dancing, singing, and acting. We enjoyed every minute!!! Thanks for getting us into the Christmas Spirit"

Praise for our 2009 production:
"It was wonderful. I loved the dancing, especially the tap."
"A most uplifting, delightful adaptation of the original White Christmas. A must see by everyone."
"White Christmas was a top notch production. The acting, singing, and staging were terrific. The tap dancing numbers were really well choreographed and the dancers looked like they enjoyed every moment. We were blown away by the young girl's singing, dancing and acting. One noticeable thing was that even though it was a play the actors were so convincing it did not seem like they were acting. My husband and I and our two adult daughters loved every minute and think it is the perfect prescription for getting in the holiday spirit."
"A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I would love to see it again but understand it is sold out! Everything stage sets..costuming and of course the actors.....perfect!"
"We had a wonderful evening and my curiousity was satisfied about how a movie production would translate to a stage production.
Very well indeed, the set was very clever and the costumes very rich and sumptuous to the eye.
Very well done and a magical night of music. Thank you."
—Karen, West Vancouver
"This is one of the tightest musicals I have ever seen outside of Broadway and London's West end.! White Christmas is a delight and audiences leave the theatre humming the familiar theme. The Arts Club’s production remains true to the film and the Vancouver cast is every bit as talented and entertaining as their better known film counterparts. If you do nothing else this Christmas season rush to the Stanley Theatre and beg for a ticket to see this wonderfully warm and fuzzy Christmas Show!"
"Very professional, not too long, not too short. Great show. Great music."
"I loved the show! It stayed very close to the original movie but had a splash of its own personality. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys music, dance, comedy and a great night out."
"I loved this production of White Christmas. The caliber of performance, music and dance was outstanding. The movie has always been an annual favorite, and this was just different enough to make it fresh and highly entertaining. A real festive treat!"
"This was a magical, amazing, and wonderful production. The cast are beyond talented and reprised these famous roles with ease. The sets were breathtaking and brilliant, and the orchestra divine. GO AND SEE THIS SHOW. It will make your holiday season.....Good job everyone, I am giving you another standing "o" from my livingroom! :)"
"This was the most amazing live performance I have ever seen. Between the amazing props to incredible acting, everything about it made the experience so enjoyable."
"Fabulous and fun! A great way to start the Christmas season."
"Excellent performance! I took my two daughters (12 and 16) and my sister-in-law to see the production and they all loved it and thanked me for taking them. Bar none, my favourite moment was when everyone sang along to White Christmas. The sets were great and the singing was excellent. I loved it!"
"Excellent! Very well done and most enjoyable. My mom, daughter and I came to see it and loved it. It is my mom's favourite musical & Christmas show.
Great job!! The singers, dancers, & cast were wonderful."
"Our family is a big fan of "White Christmas"...it is a family tradition and this musical was wonderful! The actors were great and everyone was singing along to the songs. It was a great start to the season!"
"Loved it! A great job staying true to the movie but bringing in other songs which complimented the storyline. Definitely can see this becoming a yearly production--for a few seasons at least."
"The performance was fantastic. The three friends that came too enjoyed it and we are all still talking about it. I watch the movie and am happy to say that the performance we viewed measured up in every way. Thank you again for providing us with such an enjoyable afternoon."
"Absolutely delightful. Great to see young and old there, enjoying this holiday classic. One of my all time favourite Christmas musicals. Great music, great dancing, great fun! Go and see this musical now. Merry Christmas!"
"Perfect way to begin the Christmas season. The cast was outstanding, the music uplifting, and the production of the usual high standard we have come to expect from the Stanley. We love our seasons tickets."
"Wonderful show, very professional. It made our hearts beat and our feet tap all the way through. Keep up the great work!"
"Our favorite Christmas movie is White Christmas, so we went to this wonderful musical knowing every song and dance. We thought this production was even better! Great dancing, fabulous singing and some new numbers that we're sure Irving Berlin would have been proud to have seen. Bravo to an amazing cast and crew! We thoroughly enjoyed every moment and it's a wonderful way to start the holiday season."
"We loved it! Performances were top notch. Really put us in the Christmas mood."
"This was such a wonderful evening! I was impressed by the energy and the pure talent of the entire cast!
I have told many to see it while they can. Truly, we felt as though our Christmas celebrations could officially begin after seeing this! Well done."
"My husband and I saw the show Dec 4. We sat there smiling through the entire performance and we left humming the tunes, which to me is a sign of a good show. Our seats were in the second row and we were able to see clearly what fun these performers have while acting and singing. At one point during a dance number, a hat flew out of a cast member's hand and landed on the pianist's head in the orchestra pit. How everyone kept on going without laughing is beyond me. Well done all!"
—Susan and Thomas, Surrey
"My sisters and I watch this movie every year as a Christmas tradition, seeing the show live at the theater surpassed our already extremely high expectations. We had the best time and the dancing and singing were fabulous!"
"My family and I absolutely loved this production of White Christmas! It had it all: humour, tenderness, singing, dancing, romance! We've recommended it to everyone we know."
"My two sisters who were visiting from Kimberley, BC and Victoria and I had a wonderful time seeing White Christmas. Being in our 50's we remember watching this on television every Christmas and singing along with "The Haynes Sisters". We left the theatre singing away and will carry on this memory for a long time. Thank you for putting on these productions!"
—Aldona, New Westminster
"We, along with our friends thought it was a great production. It is good to see 'live productions' on stage and the actor/ess were outstanding.
We attend shows whenever we can and support our community when they stage live productions."
"My husband and I attended the show on Sunday, November 22 with his parents who are both 87 years old. On behalf of our entire family, thank you so much to the entire cast for filling us all with such joy. You all captured the spirit of the story and it just swept us away. We couldn't stop talking about Jeffrey Victor who played the famous Bing Crosby role, not only did his voice bring Irving Berlin's music justice, but in his eyes we could see straight through to his heart. Thanks again to all!"
"A wonderful performance, the music the singing and the acting were fantastic"
—Beverley, North Vancouver
"Todd Talbot and Jeffrey Victor should go on the road together! My family and I could have watched them all night! Their on stage chemistry was spot on and it made for a wonderful evening! With Victor's voice and Talbot's dancing... Well done boys."
"I was amazed at the stage production of White Christmas. I have watched the movie for about the last ten years and it "tickles my fancy" each and every time. I was not sure how the stage production would stand up in comparison to it. Well, it blew my socks off. The singing and dancing were tremendous, the sets were remarkable and the acting was totally captivating. The whole show zoomed along with a quality of fun that is unsurpassed! White Christmas will put you in the mood for the holiday that will soon be upon us. Do your friend and family a favour and take them out to see this production of the highest caliber."
—Anita, New Westminster
"Every year for the past 14 years, myself and my 3 sisters meet in Vancouver for a 3 day fun fest. We all loved the musical at the gracious Stanly Theatre. The performance was so professional and was so spirited with all the variety of singing and dancing. We loved it and was the centre piece of time in Vancouver! Thank you for all the hard and committed work."
—Margaret Cunningham, Quesnel
"Fun filled musical where we got to sing too! Definitely a must-see for the entire family. Plus every seat in the house is a good one, we were in the back row and it was still fantastic!"
"I LOVED it - you took my favorite Christmas movie of all time and made it better!
"This production was just great-it stayed true to the original "White Christmas" and the tap numbers were unforgettable. Hopefully this will become an annual event, my only regret being that I didn't see it closer to Christmas to keep me in the Christmas spirit!"
"My daughter and I attend the Arts Club Theatre productions a few times a year, but the offerings during the Christmas season are our favourites. We really enjoyed last Sunday's matinee performance of White Christmas. We appreciate all of the work that goes into a production of this caliber and feel we always get more than our money's worth.
I have been attending Arts Club performances for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. Thanks so much, Bill and Company."
"We formed a group called "the Aunts". There were 5 of us but one passed away so there are now 4. Periodically we find an outing and attend together. This Xmas is was "White Christmas". Dal Richards was entertaining and informative, the cake and coffee was yummy. The musical was a great treat. We all remember the movie and of course the music of Irvin Berlin. The songs, the dancing, the sets, everything was extremely well done. We all left singing songs from the musical."
"All 4 of us in our family thought it was absolutely FABULOUS!!! Just magical! Kudos to the actors, choreographers, orchestra, and set designers for a superbly entertaining production!"
"Everything was fabulous. The singing, the dancing, the entire production. It was a treat for the whole family from age 3 to 66! I'm looking forward to making this a holiday tradition."

—Susan, North Vancouver

"Fantastic, I loved every minute of it! this show really took me back to 50's and made me feel like I was watching a movie... thank you, you have done a really good job with it!!!"

"Loved it! The time just flew by. Thank you so much."
