The ASB Theatre Ensemble proudly presents our spring musical

 

There’s trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian…

This year, the ASB Theatre Ensemble proudly presents Meredith Willson’s Golden Age classic, The Music Man. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957. The Music Man’s family-friendly story, immortal score, and innovative format make it a must-see for all ages. Our ASB Theatre Ensemble student Play Selection Committee and you, our cast members, will be thrilled to be sharing this piece with friends, families, and community members!

The Music Man 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 that he vows to organize – despite the fact that 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, the town librarian. While it may be said that Marian transforms Harold into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall, Harold exuberantly converts the town of “Iowa-Stubborn” citizens into joyous, engaged, and loving human beings.
