Ridgeview Charter School actors and singers are preparing for their spring musical theater production of “Meet Me in St. Louis,” which runs May 4-6.
Based on the 1944 Judy Garland film, the story tells of an American family in 1904 at the time of the World’s Fair in St. Louis. Four beautiful daughters learn that their father has been transferred to New York, just after Esther has fallen in love with the boy next door.
Their love and respect for one another is tempered with the genuine humor that can only be generated by such a special family. Memorable musical numbers include “The Boy Next Door”, “The Trolley Song”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.
The RCS stage production is presented by music teacher Dr. Susan Messer and drama teacher Chris Harbour.
Showtimes are 7 p.m., May 4-5; and 3 p.m., May 6. Admission is
