Aug 1 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

August 1, 2, 8 & 9, 2014.  An affectionate paean to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s 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 he vows to organize – this despite the fact 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.

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best.
