Con man Harold Hill poses as a boys’ bandleader to scam the good people of River City. But when he meets Marian the librarian, it’s she who calls the tune. She’s the one he wants, but she only wants him to leave town. Romance blooms when Harold helps Marian’s little brother, Winthrop, overcome his fear of public speaking. With Marian at his side, Harold tries to convince the town that he’s a changed man and legitimate band leader.

One of the best loved family-friendly plays of the twentieth century, THE MUSIC MAN, overflows with familiar songs, like Seventy Six Trombones, Till There Was You, Goodnight Ladies, Gary, Indiana, and Goodnight My Someone.

    Hi, All.

    It was SO fun to be amongst you again last week. Every time I audition, I remember that I’ve forgotten how much I like working with other “theater-types.”

    I’m sorry to bug you, but I was having such a good time on Sunday that I failed to ask the date by which you expect to have the cast announced.

    Would you be so kind as to inform me? Thanks so much.
    Hoping to see you soon.
