About the Show:

The rundown parsonage at their new parish comes as a shock—but that’s only the beginning! Reverend Spence finds the church building coming apart, the congregation split into warring factions, and the choir “a cross between the devil’s grandmother and a swarm of mountain wildcats.” Eileen and Hartzell, his teenage children, are disgusted at having been yanked out of a comfortable parsonage and a fine high school. But then Hartzell meets pretty Louise, and Eileen is introduced to the football captain. The humorous complications that result make trouble for Reverend Spence. His struggle to build a new church, organize a new choir, and crush intolerance leads to a battle among his flock and the threat of being dismissed from the clergy! Hartzell’s complications have led him not only to the brink of romantic disaster but right into the local jail—just when the future of the Spence family depends on him! The surprising conclusion brings down the curtain on an evening that both entertains and lifts the spirit.

About the Show:

Based on the heartwarming MGM film, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS is a rare treasure in the musical theatre; a wholesome and delightful 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.”
