Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square, a new holiday film by the country music superstar, is set to drop on Netflix November 22. The original musical movie is directed and choreographed by Tony nominee and Emmy winner Debbie Allen.
In Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square, Tony winner Christine Barnaski (The Good Fight, Mamma Mia!) plays a Scrooge-esque town owner named Regina Fuller who’s poised to evict everyone and sell the land to a mall developer. Enter Grammy winner and Tony nominee Parton as an angel who leads her on a path of redemption.
The cast also includes Jenifer Lewis (Black-ish, Hairspray), Treat Williams (Hair), Josh Segarra (On Your Feet!), Jeanine Mason (Roswell, New Mexico), Mary Lane Haskell (Heartstrings), Matthew Johnson (American Idol), and Selah Kimbro Jones (Hidden Figures).
The movie will feature 14 original songs from Parton, including the title song, which is featured on her upcoming holiday album, A Holly Dolly Christmas. Parton, who scored a Tony nomination for her score to the Broadway adaptation of 9 to 5, is no stranger to Netflix; last year, she spearheaded the anthology series Heartstrings, with each episode inspired by a Parton hit.
