Goodspeed Musicals welcomes a top-notch cast for its brand new, world premiere musical, Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn. The much-anticipated production runs now through November 30, with an Official Press Opening slated for October 15, 2014. Below, check out a new teaser with highlights from the show!

Happy holidays! Check into the tuneful world-premiere musical about a Connecticut farmhouse transformed into a jubilant nightspot -- but only on holidays. From Valentine's Day to the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving to Christmas, expect a cornucopia of hit songs by Irving Berlin in a dance-dizzy romance based on the classic film that first starred Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. Raise a glass of cheer to "Happy Holiday," "Easter Parade," "Be Careful, It's My Heart" and more of the world's greatest show tunes.

Holiday Inn features music by Irving Berlin and a new book by Gordon Greenberg and Chad Hodge. Greenberg has directed numerous Goodspeed productions both at the Goodspeed Opera House and The Norma Terris Theatre including the new musical Band Geeks! for which he also co-wrote the book. Chad Hodge created several television series including NBC's The Playboy Club and the upcoming FOX series Wayward Pines.

Leading the cast will be Noah Racey as Ted Hanover. Mr. Racey returns to Goodspeed where he previously starred in Where's Charley? and went on to choreograph the 2010 production of Annie Get Your Gun. Susan Mosher, of Broadway's Hairspray, will play Louise. Danny Reed will be played by Danny Rutigliano who was seen in last season's The Fabulous Lipitones at Goodspeed's Norma Terris Theatre.

The ensemble includes Alissa Alter (Goodspeed's 42nd Street), Abby Church (Broadway's How to Succeed... andIrving Berlin's White Christmas), Darien Crago, Caley Crawford, Jeremiah Ginn, Juliane Godfrey (Goodspeed's Good News! and The Great American Mousical), Laura Harrison, Bryan Thomas Hunt, Charles MacEachern (Goodspeed's Hello, Dolly!), Karl Skyler Urban, and John T. Wolfe (Goodspeed's Mame). The swings are Sarah Fagan and Darrell T. Joe. Connecticut native Spencer Stanley will understudy the role of Charlie Winslow.

Holiday Inn will be directed by Gordon Greenberg. Tony-nominated Anna Louizos will be the Scenic Designer. The Music Director for Holiday Inn will be Michael O'Flaherty.
