Strike up the band and march over to Drayton for the most anticipated show of the summer! The Drayton Festival Theatre ends its 25th Anniversary Season on a high note with a grand-scale production of Meredith Willson's The Music Man, which entertains audiences of all ages through August 29th.
The Music Man follows Professor Harold Hill, a charismatic con man who arrives in River City, Iowa and proceeds to turn it upside down. Hill's particular con involves tricking the townsfolk into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band, despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for the town's librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo. Featuring energetic dance numbers and cherished classics like "Ya Got Trouble," "Seventy-Six Trombones" and "Till There Was You," The Music Man is sure to leave audiences cheering for more.
Tickets are $42 for adults and $25 for youth under 20 years of age and may be purchased online at www.draytonfestivaltheatre.com, in person at the theatre Box Office, or by calling (519) 638-5555 or toll free 1-855-DRAYTON.
