The Music Man is based on the book of the 1957 stage musical by Meredith Willson, based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey. Traveling salesman, Harold Hill, arrives in small town River City, Iowa, just before the Fourth of July in 1912.  He convinces the town that it’s in danger of corruption by the arrival of a new pool table and convinces them he can redeem them through a kid’s band, of which he is organizer and leader. He promises to teach music lessons, but he is no musician and plans to skip town without giving any lessons. Town librarian Marian sees through him. As the Fourth of July approaches, so does the risk of Harold being arrested!

This nostalgic, warm, funny, family-friendly musical performed by Lancaster Bible College students features Randy Robbins, sophomore, Music Pedagogy major, as Professor Harold Hill and Rebekah Hill, sophomore, Musical Theatre major, as Marion Paroo. Leading the production are LBC Worship & Performing Arts faculty members, David M. Felty as Executive Producer and Dr. Robert F. Bigley as Artistic & Musical Director. The performance is directed by Earl Grove who has served worldwide as producer and director including 23 years at Sight & Sound Theatres.
