Our third production for the 2011-2012 season, “The Music Man” is an affectionate homage to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era. The story 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.
Of “The Music Man,” Meredith Willson, himself, said it was a “Valentine to the real small-town citizens of 1912.” Folks of all ages are sure to enjoy this classic of flag-waving, feel-good, musical comedic Americana.
7 PM show dates are March 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 16 and 17 with one matinee performance on the 10th at 2 PM. The Thursday, March 8 show is a benefit performance in which tickets, normally $10 and $8 (seniors and students), will be discounted to $5 with a per-ticket donation for the Spring Hill Public Library.
