Five time Tony Award winner, THE MUSIC MAN is a toe-tapping, all-American musical for the entire family! It is the story of a fast talking con man "Professor" Harold Hill who promises the town folks of River City, Iowa a magnificent marching band if they purchase uniforms and instruments from him. Marian Paroo, the town librarian, tries to expose him and chaos ensues. Harold Hill must prove himself to Marian and the citizens of River City. Will Harold Hill steal the town's money or will Marion steal his heart?
The classic show tunes "Ya Got Trouble,' "Goodnight My Someone," "Gary, Indiana," "Till There Was You," and "Seventy-Six Trombones" celebrate one of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time.
