”The Music Man” is presented by the Millennium Repertory Company July 8-17 at the Manchester Arts Center.
Set in the early 1900s in Iowa, “The Music Man” is a fun, energetic, whimsical show filled with lots of music and plenty of laughs. It is the story of Harold Hill, a con man who plans to skip town with the cash he swindled from the townspeople, but instead he falls in love with Marian, the town librarian.
Landon Spangler plays Harold Hill, the smooth-talking, charming traveling salesman; Laurie Burger plays Marian Paroo, the smart, head strong town librarian and piano teacher. Other local actors that are featured in this show include Joel Longstreth, Jim Shimwell, Brennan Clarneau, and Chris Sullivan. The Music Man is directed by Danelle Afflerbaugh.
Performances for The Music Man will be Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. The Arts Center is located at 128 E. Main Street, just off Manchester’s historic town square. To purchase tickets, visit millenniumrep.org, or call 931-570-4489.
