Bing Crosby: Christmas On The Air
By Matt Zembrowski & Paula Foley Tillen
It’s that time of year again. With fond memories of our Thanksgiving feasts behind us and Christmas quickly hastening upon us we scurry to get all of our holiday preparations completed. We awake in the wee hours of the morning to snatch up the best Black Friday bargains, and hope to find more Cyber Monday online deals with their free shipping advantages. We rush out early to buy our fresh green Christmas trees and wreaths for the best selection, and barely wait for our Thanksgiving dinners to digest before we begin to meticulously decorate our homes for the arrival of December 25th.
Over the next few weeks presents are wrapped and placed under the tree, holiday goodies are baked, and our Christmas menus and plans are securely put into place. Ah yes, the wondrous sights and sounds of the holiday season are evident all around us, and with it comes all of the hustle and bustle that so often wears us down. After the holiday season has passed we look back, reflecting and wondering what it would have been like had we just taken a little bit of time to actually enjoy those wondrous sights and sounds leading up to Christmas.
Well, the opportunity is here. The New Theatre on Main is proud to present ‘Bring Crosby: Christmas on the Air,’ and it is the perfect way for you, your friends and your family to gather together and celebrate the holiday season. Matt Zembrowski and Paula Foley Tillen bring this loving, heartfelt tribute to Bing Crosby that will make you feel as warm as a crackling fire and thank your lucky stars that it’s bound to be a “White Christmas.” This homage to old time radio and the golden era of song is a perfect Christmas present that will leave you with a Yuletide feeling right through the holidays.
Bing Crosby and the holiday season are practically synonymous. His rendition of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" is the best-selling record of all time and his holiday TV specials were eagerly anticipated annual events. Now, the beloved entertainer comes to the The New Theatre on Main in this extraordinary tribute to the legendary crooner created by and starring Matt Zembrowski, with musical direction and arrangements by Paula Foley Tillen. Featuring “Silver Bells,” “Mele Kalikimaka,” “Christmas In Killarney” and many other Crosby Christmas favorites, this sparkling bit of holiday nostalgia is sure to warm the soul on a cold winter's night.
So why not come enjoy some holiday cheer? You’ll be glad this year you took the time to experience all the wondrous sights and sounds of the Christmas season!
