JAYCEE 
Female, 10-12, any ethnicity.  Jaycee is a fifth grader, and is wanting to give a special valentine to a boy in her class named Bryce. Her older sister, Jacquelyn, attempts to calm her nerves by telling her the story of her and her friend Preston. Jaycee is quiet, and often overthinks things. She is sweet, and really wants to make a good impression. At the end of the film, she forces herself to be brave, and plans to ask Bryce if he wants to sit with her at lunch that day.

JACQUELYN 
Female, 14-17, any ethnicity.  Jacquelyn is Jaycee’s older sister, and spends most of the film trying to convince Jaycee that giving Bryce a valentine is not that big of a deal. She tells the story of her and her friend Preston, who liked each other when they were fifth graders. Her and Preston are still good friends, and call each other at the end of the film to wish each other a happy valentine’s day. Jacquelyn is a very caring older sister, and is very kind, but can be sarcastic at times. She obviously does still like Preston to some extent, but never announces it.

DUSTIN 
Male, 10-12, any ethnicity.  Dustin is a fifth grader, and is planning to not only give his crush, Lily, a special valentine, but also ask her to be his girlfriend. His older brother, Preston, talks him out of asking her out, but he is still persistent on accomplishing something on the day. After being told the story of Jacquelyn and Preston, he, although nervous, takes his brother’s lead and plans to ask Lily to sit with him at lunch that day. Dustin is a bit hard-headed, but is a sweet kid. He really likes Lily, and is nervous, but determined, to talk to her later in the day.

PRESTON 
Male, 14-17, any ethnicity.  Preston is Dustin’s older brother, and is the one to talk his brother out of asking his crush to be his girlfriend. He relays the story of he and Jacquelyn to his brother, and still evidently has secret feelings for Jacquelyn. He gets a call from Jacquelyn at the end of the film, and they mildly flirt back and forth over the phone before wishing each other a happy valentine’s day. Preston is very sweet, but isn’t afraid to be straight out with his brother and give him advice. He misses Jacquelyn a lot, more than he lets on, and hopes she visits soon.

YOUNG JACQUELYN 
Female, 10-12, any ethnicity.  The younger version of Jacquelyn. She is only seen in the flashback scene where her and Young Preston meet. Her friends Mary and Kira try to convince her to go talk to Young Preston, but she is scared to, so she refuses. She gets hit accidentally with a football by Young Preston’s friend, Mark. She asks Young Preston if he wants to sit with her at lunch.

YOUNG PRESTON 
Male, 10-12, any ethnicity.  The younger version of Preston. He is only seen in the flashback scene where he and Jacquelyn meet. His friend Mark tries to get him to go talk to Young Jacquelyn, but he refuses, asking his friend to just let it go. When Mark throws the football over to hit Young Jacquelyn, Young Preston runs over to apologize. He says yes when Young Jacquelyn asks him to sit with her at lunch.

MARY 
Female, 10-12, any ethnicity.  Mary is one of Young Jacquelyn’s friends who tries to convince her to go and talk to Young Preston. (Only has two speaking lines, but is present for the entire flashback scene.)

KIRA 
Female, 10-12, any ethnicity.  Kira is Young Jacquelyn’s other friend who is trying to get her to go talk to Young Preston. (Only has one speaking line, but is present for the entire flashback scene.)

MARK 
Male, 10-12, any ethnicity. Mark is playing catch with Young Preston during the flashback scene. He tries to convince Young Preston to go talk to Young Jacquelyn, but when his friend doesn’t make a move, he throws their ball over to where Young Jacquelyn is standing, so Young Preston will go apologize and talk to her.


 
Story line: Jaycee and Dustin are two very stressed out fifth graders, yes indeed. It’s Valentine’s Day, and they both want to give a special someone a special valentine, but are fearful that their feelings won’t be returned. Thankfully, Jaycee’s older sister Jacquelyn, and Dustin’s older brother Preston are there to calm their nerves in the only way they can think of; to tell them the same story, the story of how they met on Valentine’s Day many years ago.

ROLES:
 
RICK 
Tracie's ex, he's a lanky, ruggedly handsome, deep-voiced cowboy type, a talented singer-songwriter who moved to Nashville to break into the music business, but never quite made the grade.  He and Tracie eloped while still in their teens, and the fact that he was off gigging while his two daughters were young is a source of regret for Rick, who is now actively involved in his girls' lives.  To fulfill their Christmas wish, Rick agrees to accompany Tracie and the girls to his former in-laws' farm for the holidays -- even though he is well aware that his ex mother-in-law, Mimi, frankly detests him and was instrumental in breaking up his marriage.  But Rick, who is making moves to purchase the Nashville bar where he has been performing, has never stopped loving Tracie, and sees this Christmas as an opportunity to win her back.  When his hopes crash and burn, however, he leaves the farm and returns to Nashville.  But an unexpected happy ending may be around the corner for Rick, just in time for Christmas...LEAD -MUST SING AND PLAY GUITAR. PREFERRED WILLING TO WORK AS A LOCAL HIRE

MARTHA "MIMI" JACOBS 
60s, she's Tracie's mother, a fiery pastor's wife and the soloist in her church choir.  Mimi considers herself religiously devout -- but is so controlling and judgmental that she unconsciously neglects the lessons of her faith.  Always perfectly put together, Mimi expects perfection from everyone in her family, and she has never forgiven Tracie for eloping with country musician Rick when they were both still in their teens -- a marriage that she helped break up.  When Tracie and Rick arrive in her home over Christmas, she makes no bones about the way she feels about Rick.  And when Tracie's love for Rick appears to be rekindling, Mimi acts decisively to nip it in the bud.  Later, however, when Tracie finally gets the nerve to confront Mimi about her controlling ways, Mimi gets a crash course in tolerance and acceptance -- new skills that result in closer ties with all her children, and a far happier holiday than they have ever had before...LEAD - MUST SING. PREFERRED WILLING TO WORK AS A LOCAL HIRE

PASTOR ED JACOBS 
60s, this kindly older man is Mimi's husband, a stalwart, true-blue minister who has a deep understanding of human nature, and a great tolerance for human foibles, unlike his controlling wife, Mimi, who expects perfection from all in her family.  Ed loves Mimi and accepts her persnickety ways, but he's well aware that she's overstepping when she interferes with Tracie's renewed romance with Rick, whom Ed has come to really like during his recent stay. When Ed delivers an inspired sermon about the importance of acceptance, it inspires Mimi to turn over a new leaf and reconcile with Rick -- and her entire family -- just in time for Christmas...LEAD - PREFERRED WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE

HARPER 
8 years old, she's Tracie and Rick's oldest daughter, a lovely girl who gets along famously with her younger sister, Ava.  She and Ava are unaware of their mother's tense relationship with their grandmother, Mimi.  All they both want this year is to spend Christmas at their beloved grandparents' farm -- and they want their dad Rick, Tracie's ex, to be part of this Christmas package.  Later, however, when they hastily depart the farm for reasons not clear to them, the girls are distraught. But they may ultimately get the best Christmas present of all -- a reunited family...LEAD - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

AVA 
6 years old, she's Rick and Tracie's youngest child, a sweet and outgoing girl who is sometimes prone to anxiety and fearfulness, perhaps as a result of her broken home.  Like her older sister, Harper, Ava adores her grandparents "Mimi and Pop Pop," and wants nothing more for Christmas than to spend the holiday on their farm -- with their dad Rick included in the festivities. Later, Ava is also tearful and distraught when they hastily depart the farm -- just before Christmas...LEAD - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

MISTY 
60s, this proud, feisty "redneck woman" has a big heart and a mischievous streak. Since her husband's death, she's been running his bar, and she has become close friends with Rick, the bar's regular musician. She's looking forward to retiring to Florida and she just wants to sell out and get going -- and when Rick gets the cash to buy her out, she's thrilled to pass her beloved bar along to such a good friend...9 speeches & 8 lines, 4 scenes -MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

LYDIA 
39, she's one of Mimi's apparently perfect daughters, who is every bit as perfectly coiffed and turned-out as her mom.  A college professor, she finds the courage, after Tracie's outburst, to finally inform her mother that she didn't make tenure and that her academic career is on the rocks -- but she was afraid to tell her because she knew she would be disappointed...2 speeches & 13 lines, at least 5 scenes - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

BETH 
41, Mimi and Ed's oldest daughter, she's an entrepreneur who runs a successful business with her husband, Garrett.  After Tracie confronts her mother, Beth finds the courage to confess that she and Garrett aren't so perfect after all -- in fact, they're in marriage counseling, which to date they've been keeping secret from Mimi, for fear of her disapproval...4 speeches & 4 lines, several scenes - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

REBECCA 
29, Mimi and Ed's youngest daughter, she's a "young, socially conscious" entrepreneur who, along with her husband, Steve, is one of the most disgustingly happy couples on the planet.  The two constantly smooch and coo -- PDA's that are driving Tracie to distraction.  Unlike her older sisters, Rebecca never admits any flaws, but maintains her facade of perfection through thick and thin...2 speeches & 9 lines, several scenes -  MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

BRENT 
30s-40s, Mimi's neighbor, he's a tanned, rugged, handsome gentleman farmer who has made his fortune scouting new talent in the music business.  Mimi blatantly sets him up with Tracie, and he seems not at all reluctant to get to know this attractive single mom better.  But he's a little confused when he learns that Tracie's ex, Rick, is also staying with Mimi's family over Christmas...13 speeches & 7 lines, 4 scenes -  MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

STEVE 
30, Rebecca's apparently perfect husband, this successful young entrepreneur constantly smooches and coos at his wife in PDA's that are getting on Tracie's very last nerve...3 speeches & 5 lines, several scenes - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

GARRETT 
42, Beth's husband, he's a successful entrepreneur who joins Mimi and their extended family over Christmas. He and Beth seem like the perfect couple -- but they are dealing with some family skeletons not immediately apparent to the rest of the clan...3 speeches, several scenes- MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

ROSIE 
9, Ava and Harper's cousin, she's delighted to be spending Christmas with the girls and welcomes them with open arms...6 lines, several scenes - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

CONNOR 
13, he's another of Mimi and Ed's high-spirited grandkids who is spending Christmas at their farm...1 line, several scenes - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

OLLIE BABBITT 
70s, this crooked, irascible old man drives Tracy, Rick and the girls off his property at gunpoint...1 speech & 3 lines, 1 scene - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.

ASHLEY 
30s, Tracie's former high school classmate, this loud, gaudy woman gushes over Tracie when she meets her at a local diner.  Since they are together with their two girls, she assumes that Tracie and Rick are still married...5 speeches & 2 lines, 1 scene - MUST BE WILLING TO WORK AS A NASHVILLE LOCAL HIRE.


STORY LINE:  Fulfilling the Christmas wish of her two young daughters, hard-working single mother TRACIE PRUITT reluctantly agrees to spend Christmas with her demanding control freak mother MIMI and her apparently perfect family, all of whom seem to sit in judgment on her for being a divorcee working in a minimum wage job.  But when the girls insist that their dad RICK, Tracie's ex, whom Mimi has always detested, be part of the Christmas package, the scene is set for comical disaster.  But in this case, tensions and misunderstanding spark some long overdue straight talk -- candid conversations that lead to reconciliations all around -- just in time for a joyful holiday...
