The Music Man

By Meredith Wilson

Directed by Craig Bergum

Just weeks before the Fourth of July celebration in River City, IA, "Professor" Harold Hill, a smooth talking salesman, descends on the town and persuades them that their only hope for salvation from corruption is the organization of a boys band with himself as the leader. Hill, a con-artist who doesn't know one note from another, plans to abscond with the money the parents shell out for uniforms and instruments. Only the local librarian, Marion Paroo, is unconvinced that Harold Hill is all he claims to be. Songs from the show include: Seventy-Six Trombones, Marion the Librarian, 'Til There Was You, You Got Trouble, Pickalittle and Shipoopi.
