By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson'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 traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
THE MUSIC MAN CAST
All those cast in The Music Man are required to become a KVTA member at some level (minimum $25) by a certain date during the rehearsal process. One parent being a member of KVTA does cover the membership requirement for all family members. Memberships previously paid during the 2019-2020 season will also fulfill this requirement.
THANK YOU to everyone that auditioned for The Music Man! What a cast! Our area is so abundant with talent, which makes casting a production very difficult. We thank you for your patience and willingness to be a part of this classic musical. We encourage you to please stay involved with community theatre even if you were not cast.
