BWW Reviews: HJT's THE MUSIC MANBWW Reviews: HJT's THE MUSIC MAN
by Kristen Morale - Jun 30, 2015

Harwich Junior Theater, a group that boasts productions of ten plays and musicals each year, numerous community outreach and educational programs and a variety of other annual events, is sure to amaze audiences with its current production.
