Derby Dinner Playhouse

We have been hanging on to a gift card for dinner and a show at Derby Dinner Playhouse since last Christmas.
There was a show running earlier this year that we wanted to see...but we waited too long to reserve and it was sold out.

We almost waited too long to reserve this one...

"White Christmas".

We reserved a lunchtime show because we like to eat our main meal early in the day.  These lunchtime shows can fill up quick because tour companies bring in people by the busload.

A lot of groups having special holiday outings at this time of the year.

That's the stage in the middle and the seats are all the way around it, in tiers. We were in the back highest tier but we could see just fine.

Some of the actors and actresses also bring your drinks and take dessert orders (extra charge for those), so the show doesn't start until the buffet meal is over.

No photos allowed during the show. It was a good one! Lots of singing and dancing and a big finale with Christmas-y costumes and fake snow falling on stage.  

Very enjoyable show, but I have to say their food is not the greatest. And some of their plates had crusty food residue baked on by careless dish washing. That's gross...especially in a coffee cup!

Here is the Louisville skyline from the bridge on the drive home...

It had been a long time since either of us had watched the old movie, "White Christmas", with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye (made in 1954).

A couple of days later we found it on Netflix and watched it. 

We enjoyed it, too.  No one can sing the "White Christmas" song like Bing Crosby!
