Irving Berlin’s White Christmas was a great opportunity for me and my family to spend some quality time together and to remind me how important that time is. It wasn’t just being together with my mom and brother, it was the message that White Christmas sends. It tells a story about giving back to people who have made an impact in your life. It doesn’t have to been only during the holidays, it should be all year round. It’s called paying it forward. Thank you to some of the cast members who came out and met us after the show. That was a lot of fun learning a little about them also. I am so excited to see the next musical Wicked.
****Christie attended Military Family First Nights where more than 100 family members of deployed military personnel received tickets to attend a Broadway performance at ASU Gammage.
“ASU Gammage is honored to continue this program and to be able to open its doors to military families. These families sacrifice so much for our country, it is our privilege to let them enjoy an evening at the theater together,” says Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, ASU Gammage Executive Director.
The program is made possible with the generosity of THE BROADWAY LEAGUE; long-time ASU Gammage donor and patron, Retired Command Sergeant Major Chuck Van Dam; US Airways; Blue Star Moms and the Association of the United States Army (AUSA). This three year program is a partnership with ASU Gammage and THE BROADWAY LEAGUE’S Family First Nights® program specifically designed to encourage at risk families to attend theatre on a regular basis.
ASU Gammage will also host families to see WICKED and MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET as well this season. For more information about Family First Nights, please call 480.965.5062.
