Meredith Willson’s five-time Tony Award winning The Music Man gave birth to one of the most iconic American characters of all times, the lovable rake, Harold Hill. With one hit tune after another, you’ll agree ‘Ya Got Trouble, Right Here in River City’, hum along with ‘Till There Was You’ and, when the theater erupts in ‘Seventy-six Trombones’, cheer right along with River City for Professor Harold Hill! Brought to life by artists from the Metropolitan Opera and with only five performances at The Paramount Theater between July 29 and August 7, make plans now to bring the entire family!
