The production will be followed by Meet Me in St. Louis, set at the turn of the century as the Smith family anticipates the coming of the World's Fair, as well as a number of changes within the family. The score includes the beloved songs "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "The Boy Next Door," and "The Trolley Song." It will run November 12-January 4, opening November 19.
