Cha'n 'eil òganach treun de chloinn Chamrain gu léir,
Nach téid deònach fo Bhrataich Lochial;
Gu buaidh no gu bàs 's bidh iad dìleas 's gach càs,
Oir géill cha d'thug Camranach riamh.
There's many a man of the Cameron Clan,
That has followed his chief to the field;
He has sworn to support him, or die by his side,
For a Cameron never can yield.

The third show of the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse's 2010 season, Meet Me in St. Louis, was based on the memorable 1944 MGM classic film directed by Vincente Minnelli and stared Judy Garland. In fact, Minnelli convinced Garland to take this role. You might recall their subsequent marriage had a daughter, Liza.
This classic love story was presented in a romantic, carefree manner that allowed the performers to end on a happy note as they boarded the trolley singing and dancing.
The choreography and the costumes were excellent. The cast seemed to be having a fun-filled romp through the musical numbers, especially the two youngest members, sisters Annaleigh and Alizabeth York, who played the parts of Agnes and Tootie Smith.
