Information about the ShowThe Music Man is a wonderful first offering as Floris enters the world of full length musical productions. This Broadway classic offers themes of redemption and reconciliation wrapped in a one of a kind, nostalgic score of songs that have become popular standards. The following excerpt is taken from the MTI website:
An affectionate paean to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
The show contains roles for young performers and children as well as adults and has a variable cast size to accommodate all who wish to participate.
Score highlights include:
- Seventy-Six Trombones
- Till There Was You
- Lida Rose
- The Wells Fargo Wagon
- Goodnight My Someone ... and many others.
