Journey Theater Arts: The Music Man
Mago Hunt Center - U of Portland
5000 N. Willamette Blvd.
August 9 - 18, 2013
Journey Theater Arts Group presents the award-winning classic Broadway musical The Music Man at The Mago Hunt Center Theater at the University of Portland.
The Music Man is an affectionate tribute to Smalltown, U.S.A. of a bygone era with book, lyrics and music by Meredith Willson. The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize. Although he plans to skip town with the cash, his plans are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
This musical includes quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations, and a nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads, offering family entertainment.
