Irvine Berlin's WHITE CHRISTMAS came alive at the Paramount Theatre in St. Cloud for my family and a sold out crowd on Saturday night.   I was amazed at the great vocal performances of our local talent, and especially impressed with Cathy Cooley, originally from Madison, Wisconsin, who played the role of Martha Watson.  Lydia Deavel, who played the role of Susan Waverly, also delivered a stunning performance.  I found it amazing that such a young child had such incredible acting, dancing and singing abilities. She was a very gracious guest visiting our studios.  Although I'm focusing on just a few of the performances, everyone put on a terrifc show. The dance routines, and the live orchestra, made this concert extra special.  It kept Mason, Brock, and Tanner ( pictured above from Left to Right) entertained for the entire evening...without video games! Seriously?!  Now that's entertainment! Thanks to the performers for giving it their all, and to Great Theatre Company for continuing to bring great theatre to this area.  Coming up next from Great Theatre, will be The Nutcracker Ballet, with shows scheduled December 5th through December 8th.  Just go to for more information. I suggest if you've never been to a show from Great Theatre, you take the time to enjoy the next performance this holiday season.
