Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN

The Music Man plays out the eternal battle of the sexes in the great, all-American, classic musical comedy.
Into River City, Iowa comes handsome and roguish ladies' man, Harold Hill, with a grand scheme to con the town. Little does he know, he's met his match in the unfashionably smart and uncommonly beautiful town librarian, Marion Paroo. Add to this the charming and hilarious antics of small town turn-of-the century life and you have Americana at its silliest and most heartwarming.

"This production honors the 50th anniversary of the golden musical"
- San Diego Theatre Scene

[Chris Miller as Harold Hill is] an engaging performer ... better in the smaller, more romantic moments with his reluctant love interest, the strong-willed librarian, Marian Paroo. Amanda Kramer inhabits the character with fine acting chops and a sweet soprano voice. The coupleís connection was credible, their smooches even more so.
The overblown Mayor of River City and his wife were comically played by Scott Farrell and Jennifer Lloyd. And Joey Minnich scored many a laugh as Marcellus Washburn, the fast-talking, nervous-nellie former cohort of Professor Hill. Sarah Gates-Lozier mustered a fine Irish brogue as Marionís mama, Mrs. Paroo, with just the right mix of comedy and drama. Eleven year-old Chad Mulhull was also right on the money, especially vocally, as the beleaguered lithper, Winthrop Paroo. The 12-piece band had its brassy moments, and the 40+ member cast gave it their all.
