Come enjoy the story of charismatic con man Harold Hill, dropped into a stodgy, entertainment-starved Iowa town called River City. Intending to fleece the residents with a false scheme to organize a boy’s band, Hill’s plans go afoul when he falls for Marian, the starchy town librarian. Ultimately she tames his runabout ways while he teachers her – and the entire town – the joys of emotional risks.

Directed by Veronica Costa-Bolton, The Music Man features more than 60 local actors, singers, and dancers of all ages. An orchestra of 21 musicians, under the direction of Jenny Stevens, give life to the dazzling, all-American score with a handful of the best known songs of all time. The costumes and sets created for the show are works of art unto themselves.

The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. The Broadway production won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Author, Composer and Lyricist. Its cast album won the Grammy Award, while the score for the film won an Academy Award.

There’s trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Wilson’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.

Fun fact: The Music Man was the very first musical theatre production the Kodiak Arts Council staged in the Kodiak Auditorium.  Under the direction of Gerry Wilson, it opened in the spring of 1987.
