CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Gloriously entertaining and irresistibly spirit-lifting,
The Music Man
is an American musical classic. Its effervescent score includes 'Trouble', 'Till There Was You' and the riproaring 'Seventy-six Trombones. 'Fast-talking racketeer âProfessorâ Harold Hill hoodwinks parents into believing he can rescue their errant offspring through his allegedly life-changing music programme, âThe Think Systemâ. Taking their money for instruments and uniforms with the promise of forming a brass band, he skips from town to town before his credentials are questioned and his fraud exposed. But he has reckoned without the effect of River Cityâs wilful spinster librarian, Marian. She falls for his smooth-talking charm even though she sees him for the charlatan he is. His scheme unravelling, the âProfessorâ is left to decide between taking flight yet again or staying with Marian and facing the consequences.
