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. The Music Man follows fast-talking travelling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boy’s band that he vows to organize – this despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef.  Featuring the area's finest performers and a live orchestra, you'll leave tapping humming favourites 76 Trombones or rapping Trouble.
