Redmond High tunes in to ‘The Music Man’

Redmond High’s theater department will present “The Music Man” on March 1-3 and 8-10 at the school’s performing arts center, 17272 N.E. 104th St. All shows are at 7 p.m. and admission is $10 on Friday and Saturday, and $5 on Thursday.

“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 he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian Marian Paroo don’t quite buy Harold’s story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced positive change since Harold came to town. Complicating matters even more, Harold is also falling head-over-heels for the beautiful Marian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.

This Tony award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to its one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets, and sentimental ballads, which have become popular standards.
