‘The Music Man, Jr.’ to be performed by Marlowe Middle School

LAKE IN THE HILLS, IL – Director Jennifer Lindsay and Assistant Director Brooke Atlas, along with a large cast and crew of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students from Marlowe Middle School are pleased to present “The Music Man, Jr.” on Friday, March 13, at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 14, at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m.

The musical comedy by Meredith Willson features fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill who cons the fine folks of small town River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? Hill doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef!

Can upright, uptight Marian Paroo, the town’s music teacher and librarian and Harold’s love interest, resist his powerful allure and bring sanity back to River City or will Hill be run out of town with his “76 trombones” in tow?

Based on the timeless Broadway classic, “The Music Man, Jr.” adapts this masterful musical for young performers. The result is family entertainment at its best – a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!

Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the door 45 minutes prior to each show. Children 3 and under are free. District 158’s Performing Arts Center is located at Huntley High School, 13719 Harmony Road in Huntley.
