THE MUSIC MAN Runs April 7-May 21

LAC_The Music Man logoTHE MUSIC MAN
La Comedia Dinner Theatre
April 7-May 21
[Springboro]

Fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band 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. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. The Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with old and young alike.
