Show Description:
There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian! 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 the end of the night. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. Cain Park's production features Liza Grossman and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra performing the music on the stage of the Evans Amphitheater while the actors stand in front of the orchestra singing the show's timeless classics.
