Production shot

Join veterans Bob Wallace (Jay McGuiness) and Phil Davis (Dan Burton) as – fuelled by love – the all-singing, all-dancing duo follow the stunning Haynes Sisters, Betty and Judy (Jessica Daley, Monique Young), to a Vermont lodge overseen by housekeeper Martha Watson (Lorna Luft) for a special Christmas show. Their journey takes a misstep and their rhythm is thrown off when they discover the lodge happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s old Army General (Michael Starke), who is in desperate need of their help.

A tale of love and friendship, White Christmas features the dazzling songs Blue Skies, Sisters, Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep, The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing, I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm and the most famous festive song of all, White Christmas.

Direction by Ian Talbot OBE, based on the original direction by acclaimed Curve artistic director Nikolai Foster (Annie) and two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Stephen Mear CBE (Mary Poppins).

A timeless romantic comedy to warm the hearts of all ages. Book your tickets now.

Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone of what is now the Sunderland Empire on 29 September 1906 and took to the stage on 1 July 1907 to officially declare the theatre open. Masterminded by two of the contemporary heads of British theatre, Edward Moss and Osward Stoll, the Sunderland Empire Theatre has undergone many changes since it opened but remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue.
