The Music Man is an American musical classic, following fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill and his visit to River City, Iowa, where he meets and falls in love with the willful, spinster librarian, Marian Paroo.
With his word-a-second style, "Professor" Harold Hill convinces the town to adopt his revolutionary music program, "The Think System," or face the moral decline of the youngsters of River City.
Chaos ensues as Hill's credentials are questioned and he is forced to prove himself to the citizens of River City. Featuring songs such as, “Seventy-Six Trumbones,” “Goodnight, My Someone,” and “Shapoopi.” It’s the perfect show for the entire family.
