Showboat (1951)

Wed, October 24 @ 7:00 pm

Buy Tickets

The Cotton Blossom show boat steams into town and the performers and crowd intermingle. Cap’n Andy’s daughter Magnolia(Kathryn Grayson) falls in love with a riverboat gambler Gaylord Ravenal (Howard Keel) posing as an actor. When deep Southern prejudice results in the departure of leading lady Julie LaVerne (Ava Gardner) and her husband, Magnolia and Ravenal take their places in the show. The passing of time proves that the comedy and drama of life is not so different, on or off the stage, with music from lively song and dance tunes to “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man” and the unforgettable “Ol’ Man River.”


Meet Me In St. Louis (1944)  November 28

Esther Smith (Judy Garland ) and her three sisters are caught up in the excitement of preparing for the 1904 World’s Fair. She is in love with the boy next door, who has yet to notice her despite her somewhat clumsy efforts. When her father tells them they will be moving to New York City, each of the girls is upset for their own reasons, until twists and turns lead them to an eventual happy ending. The film debuted a number of timeless hits including “The Trolley Song” and the iconic “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” sung by Esther to her youngest sister Tootie (Margaret O’Brian” which became a holiday standard.
