Holiday Inn tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business for the peace and quiet of a Connecticut farmhouse. “He quickly discovers life isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance,” state production notes. “Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?”
