This Broadway production updates the music and the dances of the 1940s holiday classic for a contemporary audience, while still delivering old-fashioned, good-time entertainment.

Jim (played by Bryce Pinkham) settles down in Connecticut after leaving the bustle and bright lights of show business. He meets Linda (played by Lora Lee Gayer), a local schoolteacher, who brings back a bit of the show business sparkle to his life. The two of them turn a farmhouse into a fabulous inn where they celebrate each holiday with spirited performances. When Ted (played by Corbin Bleu) tries to lure Linda away to Hollywood, things get interesting.

As befitting a holiday inn, the musical features several songs about holidays, including an Independence Day “Song of Freedom,” which critic Elyse Sommer described as a “showstopper.” Of course, there are two renditions of the ever popular “White Christmas” too.

The movie is open to everyone and is free (donations are appreciated). Berkshire Bank will supply popcorn, and FOLA will provide water.
