Fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize.

By turns funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is is a story to be shared with every generation. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences for over fifty years with such beloved songs such as “Goodnight My Someone,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” and “Till There Was You,”

 

The Music Man is directed by Caleb Parry, music directed by Kristin Parry, and choreographed by Kacee Neff.
