Center Theatre at the MJCCA Performs The Music Man

Center Theatre at the MJCCA presents a community production of the classic musical, The Music Man, directed by Dina Shadwell. With book, music and lyrics by Meredith Willson, based on a story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey, the stage production of The Music Man is brought to life in Center Theatre’s beautiful Morris & Rae Frank Theatre (located at the MJCCA, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody), and runs December 10 - 20, 2009.

In the musical, con man Harold Hill, who poses as a boys' band organizer and leader, sells band instruments and uniforms to naive townsfolk before skipping town with the cash. But in River City, Iowa, things go awry when he falls for Marian, a librarian he tries to divert from exposing him while he inadvertently enriches the town with a love of music.

The show’s one-of-a-kind nostalgic score includes rousing marches (Seventy-Six Trombones), barbershop quartets (Lida Rose) and sentimental ballads (Till There Was You) which have become popular standards.
