Winter Musical Opens February 7!
Winter Musical Opens February 7!


The Kent Denver Players are getting ready for opening night of the Upper School winter musical, Meet Me In St. Louis.

Kent Denver's Anschutz Family Theatre will host performances on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 9 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door.

Based on the heartwarming Kensington Stories by Sally Benson and a beloved 1944 MGM film with Judy Garland, Meet Me In St. Louis is a rare treasure in the musical theater: a wholesome and delightful portrait of a turn-of-the-century American family.

It is the summer of 1903, and the Smith family eagerly anticipates the opening of the 1904 World's Fair in their hometown of St. Louis. Over the course of a year, the family's mutual love, tempered with good-natured humor, helps them through romance, opportunity and heartbreaks.
