The Tony Award winning musical, "The Music Man" opens at Theatre Memphis on June 6, 2014 and runs through June 29. This show, which won its Tony for Best Musical is described in a release by Theatre Memphis.
"Professor Harold Hill, descends on River City, Iowa, to con the town into organizing a young people's band and, along the way, selling them "76 Trombones." But he didn't count on meeting Marian the Librarian, hearing "Till There Was You" and finding the love of a good woman and a gaggle of youngsters to tender his fast-talking, sham artist heart. The perfect summer musical!"
The Music Man is based on a book by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey, and is directed by Amy Hanford, with Gary Beard as musical director and choreography by Christi Hall.
