Dreaming of a WHITE CHRISTMAS?

Dream no longer!  R&H Theatricals is thrilled to announce that beginning immediately—amateur performance rights are available to Irving Berlin's WHITE CHRISTMAS.

Of course, some restrictions will apply—the phenomenally successful Broadway engagement last Christmas season at New York’s Marquis Theatre broke industry-wide box office records, raising the profile of this already popular show. And annual holiday-season tours are now being planned. 

Nevertheless, R&H Theatricals will now license WHITE CHRISTMAS in every region of the country, and at every season of the year: remember, Christmas cheer is always welcome, and this holiday-inspired show can inspire the holiday spirit in your audiences at any time of year.  Music Theatre of Wichita, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, and the Muny in St. Louis where WHITE CHRISTMAS first took to the stage, are just a few of the professional theatres that had great success presenting WHITE CHRISTMAS in the middle of their summer seasons!

So submit an application for performance rights or order a perusal script by visiting or by fax (212) 268-1245.  Or, feel free to call (800) 400-8160 to speak with a customer service representative.

It won’t be long before “I Love a Piano,” “Blue Skies,” “Sisters,” “How Deep Is The Ocean?,” “Snow,” “Happy Holidays,” and  of course, the title song  fill the air while WHITE CHRISTMAS fills the seats in your theatre.

As you count the house, you'll "Count Your Blessings" too!

This is disappointing - to make to show sound so accessible and have this be the second one that we applied for that is restricted for our next season.....Please consider writing “currently restricted” or something on the website so people are

Hi Queensville Players, We apologize if there was a miscommunication - you have not been denied for WHITE CHRISTMAS. It is a very popular title, and we are still in the process of checking its availability in your area with regard to any previous licensing activity. We will get back to you as soon as we can to let you know if your license request can be approved. - Christina

Are the amateur rights available in the UK?
