SHE LOVES ME
Presented by Summer Lyric Theatre
Considered to be one of the most endearing and heartfelt shows in the musical theatre cannon, She Loves Me will be making its overdue debut on the Dixon Hall stage.

Many of you might know the story from one of the successful film adaptations, In the Good Old Summertime (Judy Garland and Van Johnson) and You’ve Got Mail (Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks).
