FULL The Music Man JR Musical Theatre Camp
Join our cast of The Music Man JR, the fourth summer youth production in Artistree’s Grange Theatre. Immerse yourself in a world of acting, singing, dancing, costume making, and more. Based on Meredith Willson's six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, this toe tapping crowd pleaser comes to life with some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance. You will receive your very own official script, a music rehearsal CD, and a camp T-shirt. Performances will be July 15 & 16. We will adhere to all COVID-19 guidelines and explore having the performance outside this year.
“Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure? The story 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. The catch? 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, whose belief in Harold’s power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.” -https://www.mtishows.com/
