After the acclaimed production of The Sound of Music in summer 2012, The Greensboro Arts Alliance and Residency has announced that it will produce The Music Man by Meredith Wilson in July 2013.
The plot concerns con man Harold Hill, who poses as a boys’ band organizer and leader and sells band instruments and uniforms to naive townsfolk before skipping town with the cash. In River City, Iowa, prim librarian and piano teacher Marian Paroo sees through him, but when Hill helps her younger brother overcome his fear of social interactions due to his lisp, Marian begins to fall in love with Harold. Harold, in turn falling for Marian, risks being caught to win her.
The show features classic show tunes like “Ya’ Got Trouble (right here in River City)”, “Seventy Six Trombones” and “Till there was You”.
The 2013 Season is will also present “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder, and a Shakespeare Benefit and Feast at Mountain View Country Club in late August.
