Fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill has hit River City, Iowa looking to con the townspeople into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. Instead he surprises himself and everyone else by coloring the town with openhearted possibility, and love makes River City the end of the line for him. Meredith Wilson’s marvelous confection of Midwestern corn and Broadway hot diggety doggedness is sure to entertain, delight, and captivate the entire family. The bouncy, joyous score is full of showstoppers like “Seventy-Six Trombones”, “Marian the Librarian”, “Pick a Little, Talk a Little”, and “Trouble”. Don’t miss The Music Man, the happiest musical in America!
