The week after this holiday, they will put on the Irving Berlin musical (based on the classic 1942 film that gave the world “White Christmas”), from Dec. 1 to 5 at the Prospect Park Theater, 1584 34th Ave., Moline. Vermeire, a 20-something first-time director, was in the cast for July’s “Mamma Mia!” at Guild, and noticed no one had applied for “Holiday Inn” by then. “I said, how great would it be if I applied having no directing experience?” he... Read More
