Ferris has agreed to look after his sister’s seedy hotel but hasn’t anticipated the arrival of a notorious hotel critic/journalist or that this will coincide with an assortment of guests who have guilty secrets they do not wish to have divulged. Ferris is caught up in a dizzy round of lies and subterfuge as he tries to protect the hotel’s reputation in the eyes of the journalist, a task made more difficult by the fact that he does not know which of his guests it is!

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 he vows to organize - this despite the fact 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. $20 Adults / $10 Students / Season / Flex

With Humpty Dumpty, Black Sheep, Rose Red, and Simple Simon acting as her Merry Men, Little Red Robin Hood must save all the village grannies of Sherwood Forest, including her own, an old woman who lives in a shoe, Mother Hubbard, and Mother Goose herself.
