Lake High School Presents Meredith Willson's "The Music Man"
Winner of six Tony awards, Meredith Willson’s beloved "The Music Man" harkens back to simpler days when the Wells Fargo Wagon, rather than Amazon expedited delivery, brought packages to your home town.
Meet Professor Harold Hill, a fast-talking, dream-weaving con-artist who convinces the 1912 small town of River City, Iowa that purchasing musical instruments and band uniforms for their children will stop corruption and trouble (with a capital “T”) from tarnishing their family values.
Hill’s plans to swindle the small town citizens are thwarted when he falls for Marian, the town librarian. She soon begins to suspect that Harold is not a boys’ band leader at all, but will she reveal this to Mayor Shinn, the school Board members, or anyone else?
More than 100 Lake High School students will be involved in some aspect of this production.
Public performances are Thursday - Sunday, April 20-23, 2017 in the Performing Arts Hall at Lake High School. The Sunday, April 23, 2017 performance will be at 2 p.m. Please enter via Door 5.
Tickets are now available for purchase online for the general public, but don't delay - they are going fast! (To purchase tickets, go to www.lakelocal.org, and click on The Music Man image below 'news items' on the home page.)
The show’s memorable, toe tapping tunes including “Ya Got Trouble,” “Seventy Six Trombones,” and “Til There was You” will have you humming all the way home.
