Based on the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis, the musical

si mil arty is set during the wonder of the 1904 World's Fair. It

showcases the four beautiful Smith sisters, who dream of love

and a happy life. However, Mr. Smith informs the family they

must move from their wonderful life, love and home in St.

Louis, Missouri to New York City, where the hope of financial

prosperity resides. Join the Smith daughters and the family as

Feb. 19-22 & 27-28 Mar. 1st & Mar 6-8


Not all plans march to the beat of the drummer. This is true for

"Professor" Harold Hill, a quick-speaking transient salesman

who poses as a marching band outfitter and instructor in the

small town of River City, Iowa, in 1912. The town, hesitant at

first to accept the new-comer, falls victim to the professor's

schemes. The local librarian, however, is not so easily swayed,

doing some detective work to expose the professor's fraud. She

has a change of heart after watching her brother blossom as a

result of this fictitious band. Can love and a librarian change

this con man's ways?


Apr. 23-26, May 1-3 & 8-10


Starting a new life is never easy, especially when moving from

the big-city life in Chicago to the small town of Beaumont.

Ren has a major culture shock when he finds himself in

disagreement with the ultra conservative, spiritual town that

has put a ban on dancing. He makes quite the reputation for

himself as a "trouble-make"; he vows to break the dancing ban

and to reawaken the town. Ren faces road blocks along the

way, but eventually both he and Rev Moore let down their

guards and teach each other vital life lessons. Do you dare to

"cut footloose" with Ren and the rest of the town?




July 24-26
