Morgantown Theatre Company


Morgantown Theatre Company will present "The Music Man" Friday, February 3rd at 7 pm, and Saturday, February 4th at 1:30 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are now available at the Online Box Office.

The Music Man is the story of Professor Harold Hill and his impact on the sleepy town of River City, Iowa. Hill arrives in that small community on July 4, 1912, with every intention of swindling the town's citizens. Even with nothing but the lowest of intentions, he inadvertently brings joy into their lives and into his own life, as well. He convinces the town's residents he can teach their children to play in a marching band if they buy the instruments and uniforms he has for sale. Then he simply collects the money and skips town without fulfilling his promises. His plans, however, go wonderfully awry when he falls in love with the town librarian, Marian Paroo.

The show's score has its roots in the music of the soft-shoe, of ragtime, of barbershop quartets and the march. It is an original, fresh and warmhearted musical about basic American Values. It features the musical numbers "Ya Got Trouble", "76 Trombones", and "Till There Was You."
