July 11 through 21. Performance times vary. Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson Story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey.
CRT ends their summer season with Meredith Willson’s timeless Broadway musical classic The Music Man. Starring Barrett Foa, who stars as Eric Beale in the hit TV series NCIS: Los Angeles, as Harold Hill. Full of heart, wit, and oceans of beautiful music, the story opens on the 4th of July, 1912, in River City, Iowa. Oh, there is trouble my friends, right here in River City, and Professor Harold Hill has the antidote—an all-boys marching band. But Marian the Librarian sees through his schemes, at least until she falls in love with the irrepressible con artist and he becomes the one thing he fears the most: a respectable citizen! Overflowing with a parade of tunes including “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Gary, Indiana,” “Till There Was You” and, of course, “Seventy-Six Trombones,” The Music Man is thrillingly and tunefully nostalgic.
