A brand new initiative in a classic style: join us for an old-fashioned radio play, complete with onstage sound effects and the songs you love from the romantic movie-musical classic, Meet Me in St Louis. Featuring tunes like “The Trolley Song,” “The Boy Next Door,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” you’ll be swept away on a streetcar straight to the 1904 World’s Fair! Performances will be:
August 13th – 15th at 7:30PM
August 15th at 4:30PM
with additional performances due to popular demand on August 16th at 4:00 & 7:30 PM
Meet Me in St Louis is a part of Theatre Aspen's 2020 “All For One” Summer Season, dedicated to the many local front-line workers (first responders, bus drivers, grocery and pharmacy workers, restaurant staff, etc.) who have continued to serve the community through this crisis, with the introduction of the Aspen Heroes Program. Before each performance, one of these Aspen Heroes will be honored live from the stage. Nominations will be solicited from the community and Nicholas Vesey, Aspen Chapel Minister, and Rabbi Mendel Mintz, Founder and Director of the Aspen Jewish Community Center, will both serve as co-chairs of this newly created selection committee.
Theatre Aspen is committed to the safety and health of both audiences and performers alike and is going to great lengths to ensure it adheres to all government guidelines and policies. The organization is working with officials at all levels across the city, county, and state, to develop best practices and protocols. For this summer, the Hurst Theatre will be converted into a 75-100 seat cabaret-style space, providing maximum flexibility and as much social distancing as possible. Other modifications are being considered, such as lifting the sides of the tent to allow for fresh open-air flow.
Tickets are available for purchase here.
