“We are very excited about being able to bring this show to the Tivoli stage,” said JC Smith, founder of Closed Door Entertainment.
Set in July 1912, a traveling salesman, "Professor" Harold Hill, makes his way into River City, Iowa, bound and determined to con the good folks of Iowa.
Masquerading as a traveling band instructor, professor Hill plans to swindle the good citizens of River City into giving the finances to create a boys' marching band — to have the community pay for everything from instruments, to uniforms, to music instruction, all the while collecting enough money to eventually hop the next train out of town, leaving them without their money or a band.
However, Hill’s plan and heart hit a snag when he falls for the stubborn yet lovely Marian “the Librarian” Paroo, who he believes is bent on discrediting him and throwing a wrench into his scheme.
“The Music Man” will be presented at the Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga, Tenn., Friday, June 29, Saturday, June 30, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, July 1, at 2 p.m. Call 423-642-TIXS or visit chattanoogaonstage.com. to purchase tickets.
