Performances of the musical, based on the Oscar-winning film will continue through Dec. 21.
The ensemble includes Alissa Alter, Abby Church, Darien Crago, Caley Crawford, Jeremiah Ginn, Juliane Godfrey, Laura Harrison, Bryan Thomas Hunt, Charles MacEachern, Karl Skyler Urban, Amy Van Norstrand, John T. Wolfe, Sarah Fagan, Darrell T. Joe, and Spencer Stanley.
Here's how Goodspeed bills the musical: "Happy holidays! Check into the tuneful world-premiere musical about a Connecticut farmhouse transformed into a jubilant nightspot — but only on holidays. From Valentine's Day to the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving to Christmas, expect a cornucopia of hit songs by Irving Berlin in a dance-dizzy romance based on the classic film that first starred Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. Raise a glass of cheer to 'Happy Holiday,' 'Easter Parade,' 'Be Careful, It's My Heart' and more of the world's greatest show tunes."
