His plans to skip town with their money are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian and ends up losing his heart to her. THE MUSIC MAN is a grand tribute to the simplicity and optimism of Smalltown, U.S.A. and is perfect for the entire family.

The book, music and lyrics for THE MUSIC MAN were written by Meredith Willson. This Broadway classic features a nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads. Some memorable songs include: "Seventy-Six Trombones", "The Wells Fargo Wagon", "Till There Was You", "Goodnight My Someone", and many more.

THE MUSIC MAN is under the direction of Lee Buckholz with choreography by Megan Bliss and musical direction by Scott Bradley. The cast will include Derby Dinner favorites Sara King as Marian Paroo and Tyler Bliss as Harold Hill. Other cast members are Matthew Brennan, John Payonk, Dana Jo Adams, Elizabeth Loos, and more.
