Event Information

‘Have yourself a merry little Christmas…’ So sings Esther Smith (Judy Garland) to her little sister Tootie (Margaret O’Brien) in Vincente Minnelli’s luscious Technicolor treat.

Minnelli’s sublime evocation of early 20th-century America recounts one year in the life of the Smith family of St. Louis as they eagerly anticipate the coming World’s Fair - with romance, heartbreak, and holiday celebrations along the way. One of the all-time great musicals balances heart-warming nostalgia and heart-tugging melancholy.
