America’s bygone era is glorified in Meredith Willson’s award-winning Broadway classic. Fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill cons the people of River City into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band … despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef! By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best!
