There's trouble in River City! Berkeley Playhouse presents the heartwarming family favorite The Music Man. Lovable swindler "Professor" Harold Hill is trying to pull a con on the citizens of River City, Iowa. He claims he'll save the town's youth from sin and corruption by selling them instruments and helping to organize a boys' band -- despite the fact that he actually knows nothing about music. Soon, the irresistible "Music Man" manages to turn the bickering school board into a barbershop quartet, win the heart of Marian the librarian, and somehow transform into an honest man in the process. The delightful story is set to a parade of classic Broadway tunes, including "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More

Cheery, well costumed kids who gave their all to perform this well -scripted, well-introduced blockbuster. One could see the Fosse influence in the beautiful entry of the two sides, the band-dancers, the juggling, and the aerial foray.

A young prince goes on a fantastical quest to find the meaning of life in this experimental, '70s-style rock-circus filled with sensual and inventive story-telling. Love, war and politics - it's all here in this hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale which captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked and Godspell) bursts with one show-stopping number after another. Enjoy soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers infused with acrobatics, Fosse jazz and aerial dance!
