First debuted in 1957, “The Music Man” is a story about a footloose, fast-talking con man, Harold Hill, who tries to dupe Iowa townsfolk into buying uniforms and instruments for a kids’ band he claims to be organizing. Yet when it’s time for Hill to escape with the cash, he realizes that his growing love for the town librarian, Marian Paroo, makes it impossible for him to leave.

Kelsey Glasgow directs, with music director Linda Short, choreographer Cassie Howlett, assistant musical director Steve Barnes and a student pit orchestra directed by Nick Strobel.
