San Diego Musical Theatre presents the stage adaptation of Irving Berlin's beloved 1954 musical film White Christmas at the Birch North Park Theatre this holiday season, complete with a live 22-piece orchestra. Brimming with such timeless Berlin hits as "Blue Skies," "How Deep Is the Ocean?" and the unforgettable title song, White Christmas tells the story of U.S. Army veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, a pair of performers with a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge -- which, as it turns out, just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil's former Army commander. When they learn that the inn's future is in jeopardy, the showbiz gents team up with the sisters and save the day by producing a sparkling, family-friendly holiday show bursting with cheerful dancing, treasured tunes and a generous helping of Yuletide cheer.

This movie was horrible! I have NO idea how Elizabeth Taylor's name could have been associated with such trash! The movie had very little plot and the humor was disgusting! My very worst experience ever with Goldstar.
We walked out before the movie ended. I guess if I had been a gay man I would have enjoyed it.......that was most of the audience.
My friend who went with me shares my opinion. A huge disappointment.

May 18, 2011 at 7:00pm: Suddenly, Last Summer — A special screening celebrating the career/life of gay icon, Elizabeth Taylor!
Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor each received Oscar nominations for Best Actress in this gripping adaptation of the Tennessee Williams play. Beautiful Catherine Holly (Taylor) is committed to a mental institution after witnessing the horrible death of her cousin Sebastian. Catherine’s aunt, Violet Venable (Hepburn), tries to influence Dr. Cukrowicz (Montgomery Clift), a young neurosurgeon, to surgically end Catherine’s haunting hallucinations. By utilizing injections of sodium pentothal, the doctor discovers that Catherine’s delusions are in fact true. He then must confront Violet about her own involvement in her son’s violent death. A smash hit upon its initial release, this film (also written by Gore Vidal) is a fascinating, grandly acted film that is worth seeing for the talent of all involved – especially Miss Taylor.

June 15, 2011 at 7:00pm: Valley of the Dolls
Based on the best-selling trashy novel by Jacqueline Susann. Anne Welles ( buxom Barbara Parkins), a bright, brash young New England college grad leaves her Peyton Place-ish small town and heads for Broadway, where she hopes to find an exciting job and sophisticated men. During her misadventures in Manhattan and, later, Hollywood, she shares experiences with two other young hopefuls: Jennifer North (gorgeous Sharon Tate), a statuesque, Monroe-ish actress who wants to be accepted as a human being, but is regarded as a sex object by all the men she meets, and Neely O'Hara (screeching-mimi Patty Duke), a talented young actress who's accused of using devious means by a great older star (slumming Susan Hayward) to reach the top, pulling an "All About Eve"-type deception in order to steal a good role away from her. Oscar-nominated for Best Song – sung by Dionne Warwick. With Paul Burke & Lee Grant.
Running Time: 123 minutes Rating: PG-13
July 13, 2011 at 7:00pm: Female Trouble
What better way to kick off San Diego Pride than with a rare screening of John Water’s ultra camp classic! Dave Davenport (Divine) is an overweight, angry teenager who loathes school along with her two friends. It's nearly Christmas and all she wants is cha-cha heels. When she doesn't get them for Christmas, she abandons her conventional suburban house and makes love with a greasy guy named Earl. She later gives birth to a daughter she names Taffy (Mink Stole), who she doesn't show her any respect. All Dawn does is commit crimes and get her hair done at a salon run by a married couple named the Dashers (David Lochary & Mary Vivian Pearce) who believe in crime and beauty. They have Dawn become a crime model while Taffy and next-door neighbor Ida Nelson (Edith Massey) try to stop her. If you’ve never seen an early John Waters film (considered one of his best by fans) with an audience, then you are in for a memorable film experience.
