Harold Hill Tries to Pull the Wool Over the Eyes of River City—Will He Succeed?
Theatre in the Park is the largest outdoor community theatre in the country. Each summer they present a season of Broadway style musicals and host a variety of special events. On Thursday, July 11th, Theatre in The Park will present The Music Man.
By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.
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 that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that 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.
On performance nights, the box office opens at 6:00 p.m., the theatre seating bowl opens at 6:30 p.m. (allowing plenty of time for picnicking and fellowship), and curtain is at 8:30 p.m.
Admission is only $8 for general admission, $6 for youth ages 4-10, and children 3 and under are free (but require a ticket). Purchase your tickets online now at https://www.theatreinthepark.org or at the venue. We can’t wait to watch The Music Man with you!
If you feel like escaping Domain City Center Apartments in Lenexa, Kansas for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that! Trust us when we say that there’s no harm in getting out and exploring the greater community.
