Students entering Grades Pre-K through 12 this school year: Join us for Meet Me in St. Louis! This will be a Youth Theatre Jr. Companies, Companies, and Troupe co-production, with the Troupe playing the lead and supporting roles, and the Jr. Companies and Companies playing the featured and ensemble roles.
Based on the heartwarming MGM film, Meet Me In St. Louis is a rare treasure in the musical theatre: a wholesome and enchanting portrait of a turn-of-the-century American family.
It is the summer of 1903, and the Smith family eagerly anticipates the opening of the 1904 World’s Fair. Over the course of a year, the family’s mutual respect, tempered with good-natured humor, helps them through romance, opportunity, and heartbreaks. The musical includes seven of the best-loved songs from the film, plus ten additional Martin and Blane songs written specially for the stage. Memorable musical numbers include “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” and “Whenever I’m with You.”
