The trouble in 1912 River City, Iowa begins with con artist and salesman “Professor” Harold Hill, who appears in town to warn the citizens that the new pool table will corrupt their youth. His scheme is to organize, and profit from, a Boy’s Band with instruments and uniforms, despite his lack of musical experience.
Professor Hill’s biggest skeptic in the close-knit community is Marian Paroo, the librarian and piano teacher. Despite her suspicions, and the Professor’s moneymaking motives, romance may be in the air, and even Harold Hill may be able to change his self-serving ways.
Step back in time and enjoy Meredith Willson’s ageless TONY® Award winning musical comedy - from the opening train scene to the finale of “Seventy-Six Trombones.”
