The couple will be joined by Ken Page as Grandpa Prophater, Kathy Fitzgerald as Katie, Emily Walton as Esther Smith, Liana Hunt as Rose Smith, Dan DeLuca as John Truitt, Jonathan Burke as Lon Smith, Elle Wesley as Agnes Smith, and Elena Adams as Tootie Smith.

Meet Me in St. Louis, with songs by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and a book by Hugh Wheeler, is based on The Kensington Stories by Sally Benson and the MGM movie musical Meet Me in St. Louis. This production features a new book revised by Gordon Greenberg.
The musical is set in the summer of 1903, as the Smiths eagerly await the grand opening of the 1904 World’s Fair.
