Bellevue Little Theater’s “Meet Me in St. Louis”, a family show about families
Another spectacle graces the stage of the Bellevue Little Theatre.
“Meet Me in St. Louis,” a play, will premiere Saturday.
According to a BLT press release, the “heartwarming” and family-friendly show is about a Missouri family preparing to open the 1904 World’s Fair in their hometown.
“Anything that can go wrong for them goes wrong,” said director Jackson Newman.
It’s a show about families for families. This warm and comedic show is a great way to start the holiday season, he said.
This production is the theater’s second show in its 54th season. It runs on weekends until November 20. Sessions are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
The Olde Towne Theater is located at 203 W. Mission Ave.
