The Music Man

Show Synopsis

The season kicks off with seventy-six trombones—and one fast-talking, smooth-as-silk salesman looking to score big in small-town Iowa in The Music Man. “Professor” Harold Hill shows up in River City with the hopes of scoring a profitable scam by convincing the townspeople that he can teach their children to play musical instruments. When the local librarian sees through his scheme, the bickering twosome find the last thing either expected—love. One of the most popular productions in Broadway by the Bay history, Meredith Wilson’s six-time Tony Award-winning classic is the perfect way to kick off the season!

Run time is 2 hrs and 30 minutes including one 15-minute intermission.


This show performed from March 16th to April 1rd, 2018 at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City, CA
