PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The Holly Theatre Presente The Music Man


The Music Man, the Tony award-winning musical that played on Broadway for 1,375 performances, is the delightful story of Harold Hill (played by Michael Arens), a footloose con man who sets out to take advantage of the citizens of a small, turn-of-the-century Iowa town, promising to transform the children into a world-class brass band---for a price,
with old accomplice Marcellus Washburn (played by Judson Wright) helping him with the scam. Hill figures he's home free until he is instead captivated and morally transformed by the townsfolk. Along the way he falls in love with the town's lovely librarian, Marian Paroo (played by Heatherly Nelson), and inspires all with the joy of music.
Director David Rothel has created a glorious production of this warm and tuneful musical set at the height of America's golden age of innocence. Musical director Jeff Daniel, choreographer Krista Tritt, and accompanist Zeke Farley bring to life such classic tunes as "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Marian the Librarian," "Ya Got Trouble," "Goodnight My Someone" and "Till There Was You".

Show Dates are July 10-12, 16-19, 23-26, & 30 - Aug 2nd.

A for Awesome!

4.5
The Holly Theater totally amazed me with their recent staging of "The Music Man". The performance was enthusiastic and super entertaining. The leads, Michael Arens and Heatherly Wanamaker, are very talented and were very lovely together. I loved the Barbershop quartet. But my favorite was Mrs. Paroo, played by Gloria Szokoly, who according to everyone I talked to, stole the show. My only issue was with some of the supporting actors, like the Mayor, who was way too silly to be real, as well as some in the ensemble, who didnít seem to be in character all the time. Also some of the big numbers were not as professionally performed as when just the leads were on stage singing and dancing. Overall I really loved watching this show, and give it an A for Awesome.
