The Music Man
sponsored by Nancye B. Starnes
There’s trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian.
By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.
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.
THE MUSIC MAN
Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
