Join The Winthrop Playmakers as Professor Harold Hill marches into town August 2-12. Director/Choreographer Erin Huelskamp and Musical Director Julia Scott Carey lead a cast of more than 30 in the Playmakers presentation of this classic musical.
The Music Man is the story of Harold Hill, a footloose con man who sets out to take advantage of the citizens of a small, turn-of-the-century Iowa town, but who instead is captivated and morally transformed by the townsfolk. Along the way, he falls in love with the town's lovely librarian and inspires all with the joy of music. The Music Man won an Oscar for Best Music in 1963, featuring such well-known songs as "76 Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," and "Goodnight Ladies."
