Based on the 1944 MGM film, Meet Me in St. Louis paints a wholesome portrait of a turn-of-the-century American family. Set in the summer of 1903, the Smiths eagerly await the grand opening of the 1904 World's Fair. The musical includes hits such as "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and "The Boy Next Door," as well as the title number.
