Broadway Junior Version

Master showman Harold Hill is in town, and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure? 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!

The story 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 he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, whose belief in Harold’s powers just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.

Perfect for community groups, summer camps, and schools, the cast features a soaring soprano ingénue part and a leading role for a charismatic actor, as well as over twenty roles for kids of every level. THE MUSIC MAN JR. is the perfect vehicle for your young cast, a toe-tapping crowd-pleaser!

One intimate production of Sweeney Todd actually had Sweeney dispatch of his victims by use of a “meat-hook” that took them out the door of the theatre, since the ceilings were too low to accommodate a two-story set!
