The Summit Christian Academy theatre and music departments will perform “Meet Me in St. Louis” at 7 p.m. Nov. 14-15 and at 2 p.m. Nov. 16. Tickets for the show are $7.50 in advance and $9 at the door and can be purchased by calling 816-525-1480.
“The students are so excited about performing this show,” said Emily Stam, SCA theatre director. “The theatre and music departments love to collaborate and this is such a fun show with class songs that the entire family will enjoy.”
“Meet Me in St. Louis” is based on the heartwarming movie. Memorable musical numbers by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane include “The Boy Next Door,” “The Trolley Song,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
“The students’ creative rendition of this oldie but goodie promises to be very entertaining,” Stam said.
The show will feature several senior students in leading roles, including Hannah Zizza as Esther, Sarah Caruthers as Rose, and Taylor Shippy as Mr. Smith. The cast of 25 includes junior and senior high students, as well as four elementary students, and is directed by Stam and SCA vocal music instructor, Trissa Lucht, and choreographed by SCA junior Grace Gronberg.
