The Music Man

Book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson
Story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey

Presented June 2005 at Paris Hill Academy
Sponsored by Western Maine Health and Rupert & Suzanne Grover.

Directed by Linda Sturdivant.

The Music Man tells the story of traveling salesman Harold Hill and his visit to a small Iowa town in 1912 where he meets and falls in love with the willful, spinster librarian, Marian Paroo.

With his fast-talking style, "Professor" Harold Hill convinces the town that unless they adopt his revolutionary music program, the youngsters of River City will be forever doomed. He gets the parents to buy instruments and expensive uniforms in order to form the River City Boys Band. Chaos ensues as Hill's credentials are questioned and he is called upon to prove himself to the citizens of River City.
