Summit Playhouse kicks off its 94th season and stages its 301st production with one of the finest American musicals, MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, an adaptation of the movie musical. Set in the early 1900’s, it is the story of the Smith family and their joys and tribulations in a time when things were simpler—or were they? Humor, love and respect tells the family story enhanced by memorable musical numbers.  

As part of a commitment to give back to our community, the Summit Playhouse asks patrons to bring non-perishable food items to be donated to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Donations will be accepted on all performance evenings and matinees.

The Summit Playhouse’s production of MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS features Aaron Braden, Arnold Buchiane, Naomi Fisch, David Hoffman, Morgan Kelleher, Anna Lovallo, Alice Regan Moynahan, Stacey Petricha, Alex Post, Todd Shumpert, Sam Spare, Sky Spiegel and Rosemary Walter.
