Based on the heartwarming film of the same name, Meet Me In St. Louis takes audience members on a musical journey back to the early 1900s, on the brink of the 1904 World’s Fair. In the show’s center are the Smiths, a humble middle-class family made up of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, their four daughters Rose, Esther, Agnes, and Tootie, and their son Lon. Over the course of a year, the family’s mutual respect, tempered with good-natured humor, helps them through romance, opportunity, and heartbreaks. This musical is filled with nonstop entertainment featuring memorable musical numbers such as “The Boy Next Door,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The Trolley Song,” and “A Day In New York.”
