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

Quotes & Highlights
- <em>You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown</em> was first staged on Broadway in 1971 and revived in 1999. The musical features such songs as "Happiness," "My Blanket and Me" and "Little Known Facts."
Based on the beloved Peanuts comic strip by Charles M Schulz and brought to you by the same director/designer team that presented The AristoCats in January, the musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown presents an average day in the life of Charlie Brown. The day is made up of little moments picked from Valentine's Day to the classroom to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.
Charlie Brown is considered a "good man" by his friends, yet he can't seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl. His bossy friend Lucy has no better luck getting the attention of her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile, Snoopy and Linus daydream while the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.
The production is presented by students, grades 3-5, in Berkeley Playhouse Conservatory's KidStage program.
