The story of The Smiths, a well-to-do suburban family living in turn of the century Midwestern St. Louis. The city is about to host the World’s Fair, a spectacular exhibition on a scale never before seen, and the Smiths are preparing to celebrate its arrival. Meanwhile, sisters Esther and Rose are dreaming of romance. Esther is in love with the boy next door, whilst Rose is awaiting a phone call in which she hopes to be proposed to. However, their father Alonzo is unexpectedly beckoned to New York with the offer of a promotion and the Smith’s are suddenly arranging to move away from St. Louis; an uprooting that threatens to indelibly change their lives forever. Features numbers including The Boy Next Door, The Trolley Song and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
