“The Music Man” features the Professor Harold Hill, con man and fast-talking salesman. He convinces the people of River City, Iowa, “Ya Got Trouble” and sells them on a young people’s band and “Seventy-Six Trombones.” Marian the Librarian’s “Till There Was You” causes him to grow fond of her and the children. It’s a score of favorites: “Goodnight, My Someone,” “It’s You,” “Goodnight Ladies,” “Pick-a-little,” “Gary, Indiana,” “Wells Fargo Wagon,” and many more.

Theatre Bristol’s production of Meredith Wilson’s “The Music Man” is directed by Glenn Patterson who recently directed “Les MisÚrables,” “Scrooge! The Musical,” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

“Theatre Bristol is blessed with talent, devoted volunteers, and supporters,” said Samantha Gray, Theatre Bristol Board member and producer of the show. “The Music Man” is a celebration of the magic of music and audiences of all ages are in for a real treat. This is the summer event not to miss!”
