There’s trouble!  Right here in River City!  Fast-talking traveling salesman “Professor” Harold Hill and his “seventy-six trombones” head to Iowa to con the local rubes into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize.  His plan to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian.  Can he find a way to win her heart and save his own hide?  Shipoopi, shipoopi, …the girl is hard to get!

 

The Music Man became a Broadway hit in 1957 winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.   The cast album won the first Grammy Award for “Best Original Cast Album” and spent 245 weeks on the Billboard charts. 

 

A great family show with a G rating sure to please audiences of all ages.
