“ . . . warmth, uplift and virtually faultless construction. Here is both popular art and a model of musical theater craft.” (Alvin Klein, NY Times)

A well-woven story of redemption set against a backdrop as American as apple pie makes The Music Man an indisputable classic. Fast-talking con-man Harold Hill creates fanfare in River City, Iowa, when he convinces the town’s parents to pony up for uniforms, instruments, and more for a children’s band he’s going to lead. But there’s one catch: he knows next to nothing about music. Planning to make a speedy departure with money-in-hand before River City gets to the bottom of his plot, Harold is waylaid by an unexpected connection with the town’s young librarian. With a sweeping, unforgettable score, The Music Man asks all of us what we’d be willing to stick around and fight for.

Performance Calendar and Ticket Availability

Key for Calendar

A GREEN DOT indicates BEST AVAILABILITY. This means that the show has many excellent seats still open.

An ORANGE DOT indicates LIMITED AVAILABILITY. This means that most of the traditionally popular seats have already been taken, but you can still snag a spot for you and your family if you act fast!

A RED DOT indicates SOLD OUT, meaning there are no pairs of tickets left. Occasionally we still have a few (3-4) scattered single seats for these shows, so if you're willing to split up or you're flying solo, go ahead and check online.
