Drayton Entertainment Presents the CANADIAN PREMIERE of Holiday Inn

Start the Summer Off Right with Holiday Inn

The first long weekend of the summer seemed fitting to premiere Holiday Inn – The Musical at the Drayton Festival Theatre.  While the Victoria Day holiday is not celebrated in this show, many memorable holidays of the year are highlighted in this delightful musical production of Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn. While at the Media Night festivities we felt as though we were transported back to a simpler time where people chose to stay on the farm or long for the bright lights of the big city.  The theme of making choices runs throughout Holiday Inn from beginning to end.  It begins with Jim and his best friend Ted performing a song in which their leading lady Lila must choose between a singer or a dancer, and the person she chooses in the number almost foreshadows what is to come.  After the show Jim announces he is moving to a farm in Connecticut and that is when the story begins to unfold.  Each choice these characters make brings people into their lives while sometimes leaving others behind.  Will the choices they make bring them true happiness? That is the question on all of our minds.


Popular nightclub trio Jim Hardy, Ted Hanover, and Lila Dixon suddenly part ways when Jim decides he's had enough of show business.  He leaves the bright lights behind to settle down on a farm in Connecticut, but quickly discovers life isn’t quite the same without a little song and dance.  After meeting Linda Mason, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare, the pair turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday. When Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, Jim finds himself competing for her affections. Can he win her heart?
