The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre is excited to present the classic musical, Meet Me in St. Louis. It will run January 26 through February 11 at the theatre located at 125½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.
Based on the heartwarming MGM film, Meet Me in St. Louis is a rare treasure in the musical theatre world: 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.
Memorable musical numbers include “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” and “Whenever I’m with You.”
This delightful show is directed by Karen Elb, with music direction by Jennifer Ross. It is sponsored by Ferguson, and by Sonia King and Mary B. Martin.
Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010 or go online to www.jonesboroughtheatre.com.
