"The Music Man" is the endearing story of traveling salesman, Harold Hill, and his visit to a small Iowa town in 1912 where he meets and falls in love with the willful, spinster librarian, Marian Paroo. Originally produced on Broadway in the 1950s, Meredith Willson's "The Music Man" ran for 1,375 performances starring Barbara Cook and Robert Preston. "The Music Man" is an all-American family musical guaranteed to entertain all audiences, and features an entire score of classic hit songs, including "Til There was You," "Gary, Indiana," "Lida Rose" and of course "Seventy-six Trombones."
