Christmas has come early to the Millennium Forum this year as the in-house production team have been rehearsing with a local cast to star in the Irivine Berlin classic, White Christmas – The Musical, which opens this week.

One of the stars of the show is Jim Gallagher, who plays the role of General Waverley.

A stalwart of amateur dramatics in the North West, JIm has been performing on stage for over 40 years.

Speaking to the ‘Journal’ Jim said the show “has something for everyone.”

He continued, “The show is jam-packed with singing, dancing and a good story - it’s a show for everyone, from teens right up.

“Everyone will know the song ‘White Christmas’ and most will know ‘Sisters’ too - and it’s a big show, with a great set. It’s a typical Millennium Forum production.

“A lot of the cast and crew are moving straight into the panto, so it’s a busy few weeks up to the New Year ahead.”

The show tells the story of two ex-army pals as they team up with a pair of sisters to put on a show to save a remote Vermont ski lodge that’s fallen on hard times. A little mischief, a few misunderstandings and a whole lot of romance are the perfect excuse for a magical evening of laughter, tears, breathtaking dance numbers and some of the greatest songs ever written, including Sisters, Blue Skies and, of course, the legendary White Christmas.

White Christmas - The Musical performs at the Millennium Forum from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd November. Tickets are now available from the Box Office. Telephone 71 264455 or visit for bookings. Opening Night Offer: all seats £11.00!
