We were at the shore for Thanksgiving and thought the production of "Meet Me in Saint Louis" would be a nice way to start the holiday season, since it features the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". The theater is in a former church, with all the pews removed and a thrust stage constructed into what was the nave. That's the one drawback -- the seats are all on one level and are banquet hall dining chairs that have been placed very, very close to one another. The show was not sold out, and we moved to the empty back row at intermission so we could sit more comfortably. I'm sure they're trying to get as many seats in there as possible, but before we moved I felt like I couldn't even move my arms without bumping the person next to me.
With that said, the show more than exceeded our expectations for a local production. The cast was excellent, especially the two actresses who played Esther and Tootie. We visit Rehoboth every year and would definitely consider going back (and choosing seats in the back row, which don't seem to have been placed as close together.
