Skaneateles Summer Theater will present their summertime performance of Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” on August 5th, 6th and 7th at 7:30 p.m. at Skaneateles High School. There will also be a matinee at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 7th.
With a talented cast of over sixty and a sweet-sounding orchestra, “The Music Man” is sure to strike a chord with its audience. The plot involves the lovable con man Harold Hill, who poses as a kids’ band organizer and sells band instruments and uniforms to naive townsfolk before skipping town with the cash. In River City, Iowa, prim Marian the librarian sees through him, but when Hill helps her younger brother, Marian falls in love with him. The traveling salesman, Harold, get’s his own foot “caught in the door” falling for Marian and risks everything to win her. This valentine of a musical is set in a simpler time and place and features such memorable tunes as: “Ya Got Trouble”, “Goodnight, My Someone”, “Wells Fargo Wagon”, “Lida Rose” and the show stopping “76 Trombones”.
In its 11th year of operation, Skaneateles Summer Theater is a community-based theater troupe drawing its cast and crew from talented individuals throughout the region. Skaneateles Summer Theater strives to raise the quality of life in the local community by providing top quality, affordable musical theater performances for all ages. The group also offers youth camps for children from kindergarten through high school in an effort to foster an early love for drama. The theater group is self-funded through ticket sales and supportive patrons.
Come out and watch the smooth-talking Harold Hill as he cons his way into the heart of Miss Marian the Librarian. Tickets to this year’s show are $10 for students and seniors and $12 for adults. Call the box office at 685-5278 to reserve your seat.
