Nominated for several Tony Awards upon its 1990 debut on Broadway, Meet Me in St. Louis now lights up the holiday season with a story as warm and inviting as a stocking-hung fireplace. Based on the famed 1944 Judy Garland film -- itself inspired by Sally Benson's The Kensington Stories -- this beloved musical follows the adventures of the Smith family as they anxiously await the arrival of the 1904 World's Fair in their hometown. When Dad announces they're moving to New York, their hopes of taking part in the celebration may be crushed and their Christmas ruined. See how the family's love and respect for each other is tempered with the genuine humor that can only be generated by such a special, spirited clan. You'll hear timeless tunes like "The Trolley Song," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and, of course, the title track in this production of Meet Me in St. Louis at the Welk Resort San Diego Theatre.
