  • Lila Dixon, 30s – a determined performer and Jim’s mismatched fiancé (high belt)
  • Danny, 30s-50s – Jim, Ted and Lila’s agent (some singing/dancing skills an advantage but far from essential – we’re looking for the right character).

  • Louise, 30s-50s – the local ‘fix-it’ woman, tough, no nonsense, extremely perceptive (belt)

Great dance chorus has lots of stage time – and lots of tap!

  • Mid-western American accent is the aim for performances – give it a stab at the audition if you can
  • Apart from dance chorus, varying levels of dance proficiency required

The story:

Jim 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. Jim's luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim's best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?
