There's Johnny Nolan, a ne'er do well singer with dreams of Broadway glory, his wife, Katie, struggling to make a better life for her family, and twelve year-old Francie, an aspiring writer who relies on her imagination and her love of reading to get through hard times."

The production will feature scenic design by Joseph Spirito, lighting design by Kate Ashton and costume design by Amy Bradshaw.  Executive producer is Sarahbeth Grossman.
