Bursting with irrepressible charm, irresistible humour and a nostalgia that promises to delight – Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn tap dances onto the Hayes stage to ring in the Christmas season. 

Hoofer Jim Hardy says goodbye to the hustle and bustle of big-city showbiz to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut. He longs for fresh air and ‘Blue Skies’, but it turns out life isn’t the same without his beloved song and dance. Enter Linda, a passionate schoolteacher with talent of her own. Together Jim and Linda – with the help of unlikely friend and local handy-gal Louise – transform the farmhouse into a fabulous inn, with dazzling performances to celebrate the holidays. It isn’t all bright lights and razzle dazzle, however, when Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new Hollywood dance partner. Will Jim be able to salvage his last chance at love and finally dance ‘Cheek to Cheek’ with Linda?

Based on the film that introduced ‘White Christmas’ to the world, and featuring other Irving Berlin classics such as ‘Stepping Out With My Baby’, ‘Easter Parade’, ‘Shaking the Blues Away’ and more, Holiday Inn guarantees a toe-tapping good time for audiences of all ages. Acclaimed choreographer Sally Dashwood (Godspell, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Deb) makes her directorial debut with this timeless Christmas classic.
