After a two-year hiatus from this beloved holiday show, the Spokane Civic Theatre is dusting off the scripts and costumes for its third revival of Irving Berlin’s heartwarming White Christmas. Made famous on film by cherished Spokane son Bing Crosby, the staged version of the story is much newer than its film predecessor, debuting in 2004 — a full half-century after the Paramount film. Though from another era, the story of an unlikely Christmastime revue at a Vermont lodge has become a timeless holiday tradition, one that many of us enjoy year after year, on screen or on stage.
