Meet Me in St. Louis
This warm-hearted observation of the Smith family in St. Louis on the cusp of the 1904 World’s Fair originated with short stories by Sally Benson, but is strongly based on the 1944 MGM film. Although the plot is minimal, the charm and melody are strong elements, with songs including “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and several renditions of the infectious title song.
Award-winning designer Peggy J. Kellner created a beautiful wardrobe for this atmospheric charmer, including a variety of vintage-looking outfits for leading lady Esther and all the members of her family, plus a nice collection of costumes for casual and formal dance parties, and all-white ensembles for the climactic scene at the World’s Fair.
