We ABSOLUTLEY enjoyed this event. Why didn't we know about this in previous years (we found out this is their 5th season? This event is: well organized, well practiced/timed/performed, colorful, energetic, professional, and enjoyable. If we could get tickets (they are sold out) we would go again. We will be back next year and support them too.

It's on H Street NE, and the new trolley tracks run in front. There is street parking and it seems safe enough.

Hands down, the BEST 'Savoyards' production I've ever seen!

Tempos were more community theater than professional but the costumes, casting, choreography and quartet were exceptional.

A delightful evening's entertainment - get there before...continued

This was an entertaining play and very well performed.

The only (slight) downside was that the actors voices, particularly when singing, would have benefited from improved amplification.

_The Music Man

_music direction by N. Thomas Pedersen

directed by Michael Baron

choreography by Matthew Gardiner

 The Music Man will put smiles on your faces—it’s sure to give you a grin as big as the state of Iowa.

_ The Music Man_ tells the story of a community that comes to believe that it can turn itself around. It embraces hope, talents, a we-can-do attitude. Children learn to do things they had not imagined they could do, and adults discover that they can get along. Music is the key. You will agree, when Professor Harold Hill convinces you as well as the River City School Board.
p. When The Music Man opened at the Majestic in New York City, December 19, 1957, _New York Times _critic Brooks Atkinson called it "as American as apple pie and a Fourth of July oration.”

Fast-talking hustler Harold Hill,becomes “Professor” Harold Hill when he takes on River City, Iowa in the summer of 1912, convincing the citizenry that the new pool table will send their children into trouble. His solution: a band with instruments and uniforms that he will sell them. He plans to bilk them of their money and get out of town.

Although she sees through him, the town librarian, Marian Paroo, slowly falls for Hill’s attentions. She comes to see him as “her someone” and knows for sure that he has inspired confidence and self-assurance in her shy young brother Winthrop.
