Music and Lyrics by MEREDITH WILLSON
Directed by DAVID IVERS

PLEASE NOTE: Due to a schedule change, previews for The Music Man will now begin on December 2nd

Trouble’s comin’ … The irresistible musical tribute to the power of make-believe marches onto the ATC stages – and into your heart – with trumpets blaring! Meredith Willson’s six-time Tony Award®-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957, regaling them with the story of Harold Hill – the double-shuffle, two-bit, thimble-rigger con artist who rolls into River City station one hot Iowa summer. Hill is intent on swindling the small-town simpletons by turning them against the new pool table at the local billiard hall – a problem that can, of course, only be solved by forming a boys’ band with a wagon full of horns supplied by the swindling salesman himself. Along the way, Hill must seduce the only person in River City smart enough to see through his scam – librarian and music teacher Marian Paroo. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic, and touching, The Music Man is American musical theatre at its best.


“This quintessential American musical connects us to our communities in fresh and imaginative ways, and I cannot wait to share my favorite musical on our Arizona stages.” – David Ivers, ATC Artistic Director
