DLO Musical Theatre present ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’ in Dick Van Dyke Auditorium

DLO Musical Theatre’s upcoming production is Meet Me in St. Louis, based on the heartwarming film starring Judy Garland.

Performances are November 17  at 7:30 p.m. and November 18 at 2 p.m. at the Dick Van Dyke Auditorium at Danville High School. 

Meet Me In St. Louis takes audience members on a musical journey back to the early 1900s, on the brink of the 1904 World’s Fair. In the show’s center are the Smiths, a humble middle-class family made up of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, their four daughters Rose, Esther, Agnes, and Tootie, and their son Lon.

Over the course of a year, the family’s mutual respect, tempered with good-natured humor, helps them through romance, opportunity, and heartbreaks. 

This musical is filled with nonstop entertainment featuring memorable musical numbers such as “The Boy Next Door,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “The Trolley Song,” and “A Day In New York.” The original Broadway production was nominated for four Tony Awards in 1990, including Best Musical.

DLO’s Meet Me in St. Louis  is directed by Jennifer Hess, with music directed by Dave Schroeder.

The cast of 20 local performers features Beckey Burgoyne and Rick Welchans as Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

“This classic musical has been a favorite with my family, starting with my mother, for years.” says Hess.

“It’s a family tradition to watch the movie every Christmas. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to share the stage version with our community.”

Tickets are  $20 for adults and $7 for students and may be purchased online at www.dlomusicaltheatre.com, by phone at (217) 431-1660, or at the Village Mall weekdays from 9 am-12 pm.
