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. 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.
Open to actors Ages 7-18.
Please prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song. Sheet music is strongly preferred; no transpositions and no lead sheets. CD accompaniment tracks with no vocals are acceptable. No a cappella singing. Songs from Music Man are acceptable. Actors will be notified after their appointment if they are needed at callbacks. Not being invited to callbacks does not necessarily mean an actor will not be offered a role.
