About 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 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. 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 – this, 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 librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.

This year we will have a new format for our auditions! On each audition day, we will offer three audition workshops where participants can work with our production team on the music, choreography and dialogues that will make up their audition. Following the workshops, participants will be divided into small groups to perform an audition consisting of singing, dancing & dramatic reading for our production team panel.

Attendance at the audition workshops is not required, but is encouraged. This is an opportunity to work with our production team to perfect your understanding of the audition materials. The suggested musical pieces & dialogues for the audition are available
here.
