A Christmas Classic: “Holiday Inn” musical

Coming to Lincolnshire in December

“Holiday Inn” is one of the favorite classical Christmas movies of all times and soon to be musical at Marriott Theatre.

Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn” tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut. But life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. He turns the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday.

Based on the classic film, this joyous musical features dance numbers and songs including, “Blue Skies,” “Steppin’ Out With My Baby,” “White Christmas” and many more.

Farm Bureau has reserved a block of tickets for the “Holiday Inn” matinee at the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire for Wednesday, Dec. 5.
