Holly Jolly Days Opens Saturday, November 12, 2022!
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like White Christmas at Behringer-Crawford Museum
Rekindle memories and make new ones with the magic and merriment of the iconic 1954 film White Christmas at BCM this holiday season. Irving Berlin's White Christmas: The Exhibit, opens Nov. 12, with costumes created by legendary designer Edith Head and worn by Kentucky legend Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, Vera-Ellen, Danny Kaye, among other stars. Studio props, sheet music, cast members’ personal memorabilia, and more will be on display.
Based on the nostalgic song, by musical composer Irving Berlin, White Christmas tells the story of two WWII veterans who team up with a singing sister duo to save a faltering Vermont lodge. The charming musical features spectacular dancing and singing in extravagant costumes, such as the blue "Sisters" dresses and red Santa attire, which will be on display.
In partnership with The Rosemary Clooney House, the exhibit is part of BCM's Holly Jolly Days; a celebration of family-centered fun and attractions at the museum from Nov. 12 through Jan. 8, which includes the Holiday Toy Trains, an interactive LEGO play space and exhibit by OKILUG (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana LEGO User's Group) and Winter Wonderland in NaturePlay@BCM.
