News   Westchester Broadway Theatre Announces Holiday Performances The Westchester Broadway Theatre has announced its holiday schedule, which includes Christmas classics, ballroom dancing, the music of Sinatra, entertainment for youth audiences and Irish holiday fare.

Kicking off the season is a musical version of Charles Dickens' holiday classic A Christmas Carol, Nov. 28-Dec. 23. The new musical, with music, book and lyrics by George Puello, follows Scrooge and the trio of ghosts who visit him on Christmas Eve. Puello promises a surprising new twist for Westchester audiences.

On Dec. 3, world-class ballroom champions Erminio Stefano and Liene Apale, Francisco Forquera and Natalia Hills, Gherman Mustuc and Iveta Lukosiute, Steven Dougherty and Eulia Baranovsk, Dmitri and Svetlana Ostashkin, and Evgeny Dyachenko and Inna Ivanenko will take to the Westchester stage to present the best of ballroom.

Westchester will also host the music of the Marshall Tucker Band Dec. 4, Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge Dec. 10, and Irish entertainer Tony Kenny with "Christmastime in Ireland" on Dec. 11.

Tenors Michael Crouse, Thomas Stallone and Rinaldo Toglia will perform opera, Italian love songs, show tunes and more on Dec. 17. The three Westchester tenors will also pay tribute to the late opera legend Luciano Pavarotti. Dec. 18 will feature Steve Lippia and his swing band in an evening titled "Simply Sinatra."

Westchester will also present holiday fare for children with its presentation of the musical Frosty the Snowman Dec. 15 and 22. Wrapping up the season will be the return of Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit's Phantom, which resumes performances Dec. 27 and will continue through Feb. 9.

Phantom stars Kate Rockwell, a finalist from television's "Grease: You're the One that I Want," as Christine Daae opposite Aaron Ramey (Thoroughly Modern Millie) in the masked role of the Phantom. The gothic love story currently plays through Nov. 26, at which point it will go on hiatus to allow for Westchester's holiday productions.
