"The response to last year's holiday production of Miracle on 34th Street was so tremendous, we thought our audiences would enjoy another classic musical for the holidays," said Producing Artistic Director, Amiee Turner. "We had been considering including Meet Me in St. Louis in our main stage season but, with it's warm family themes and the joyous Christmas scene that includes the classic carol "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," it just felt better suited for the holidays."
Based on the heartwarming 1944 MGM film which starred Judy Garland, Meet Me in St. Louis is a wonderful classic from the golden age of musical comedy. Join the Smith family at the 1904 World's Fair and see how their love and respect for each other is tempered with the genuine humor that can only be generated by such a close family. Memorable musical numbers include "The Boy Next Door, "The Trolley Song," "Under the Bamboo Tree," and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Meet Me in St. Louis is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays with the entire family!
