TCDP TOP PICK : History Theatre's Christmas of Swing may be the closest thing to a Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye reunion since White Christmas. Described by the company as "a boogie-woogie holiday delight," it's a trip back to Christmas in 1944, when World War II was in full swing (pun intended), with all the patriotism and music of that era. - Morgan Halaska 

You can see this show with vouchers from the Twin Cities Daily Planet's Theater All Year program: six tickets for $99! This listing is a Theater All Year promotion

WHAT: History Theatre's "Christmas of Swing"
WHERE: History Theatre, 30 10th St. East, St. Paul, MN
WHEN: Through December 23

It's Christmas Eve of 1944 and The Andrews Sisters are preparing to lift the spirits of the troops on the front lines along with their pals Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Abbott & Costello, and Santa! Christmas of Swing is a joyful celebration of music, family, and patriotism featuring real letters from WWII soldiers, and favorite swing versions of holiday songs such as "Let It Snow," "Christmas in Killarney," and "Mele Kalikimmaka." Share some holiday cheer with the girls from Minnesota who grew up to become the sweethearts of WWII. This musical reimagining of the Andrews Sisters' USO show is a treat for the whole family – from the newest generation to the Greatest Generation and everyone in between. By Bob Beverage with music arranged by David Lohman.


For more than 30 years History Theatre has produced brave, entertaining explorations of all the histories that make up our diverse community.
