The play, a hit on Broadway for Robert Preston in 1957 and also a successful motion picture made in 1963, tells the story of con-artist Harold Hill who arrives in the sleepy town of River City, Iowa and he turns the place on its collective ear with his big city ways and method speaking. He convinces the entire town to invest in musical instruments and sets up a boy’s band. Along the way he falls in love with the town librarian, Marian Paroo, and nearly risks his life trying to avoid the ire of the city’s residents when they discover that he is a fraud. Featuring classics numbers such as “Ya Got Trouble!,” “Iowa Stubborn,” and the rousing “Wells Fargo Wagon” and “Seventy-Six Trombones” you are sure to enjoy the show!
