MEREDITH WILLSON'S THE MUSIC MAN

For actors of all ages - professional and non-professional adults plus youth ages 8-18

There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical "The Music Man" will march into your heart with it's funny, romantic, and family-friendly story. It's family entertainment at its best!

"The Music Man" follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.  This is truly an American musical theatre treasure that should be shared with every generation. Join us this summer 2017!
