  • Location: Barter Theatre Main Stage

Meredith Willson's The Music ManNever seen before on Barter Theatre’s stage. The fast-talking “Professor” Harold Hill convinces the parents of River City, Iowa, to buy band instruments and uniforms for their youngsters to save them from the corrupting influence of the local pool hall. In the process, he falls for the local librarian, Marian Paroo. Chaos ensues as Hill’s credentials are questioned, and the town is divided in their belief in this charismatic man. This story features some of musical theatre’s great characters including Mrs. Paroo, Winthrop, Hill’s sidekick Marcellus, Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn, and a host of others performed by Barter’s Resident Acting Company, who you know and love. Featuring songs from Willson’s timeless score including “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Shipoopi,” “(Ya Got) Trouble,” and “Till There Was You.”
