After the untimely death of a small-town choir director in Georgia, Vi Rose Hill, a no-nonsense mother of two teens (Latifah) takes control of the choir, although the director's widow G.G. Sparrow (Parton) believes she should have been given the position. Budget problems threaten to close down the choir.
Ultimately, the two women overcome their differences and steer the choir toward a slot in the annual national "Joyful Noise" choir competition. Meanwhile, a romance between Vi's daughter Olivia (Palmer) and the widow's nephew Randy (Jordan) ensues.
Jeremy Jordan, recently led the cast of NEWSIES at the Paper Mill Playhouse. He also starred in the recently-closed Broadway production of BONNIE & CLYDE.
