The Music Man Arrives in Town to Close 2014-2015 Season

April 27, 2015 at 3:43 pm

Seventy-Six Trombones” march into Chapman Cultural Center on May 8 for The Spartanburg Little Theatre’s last show of the season, Meredith Willson’s award-winning  The Music Man. Performances are at Chapman Cultural Center on May 8, 9, 15, 16 at 8:00 p.m. and May 10, 16, 17 at 3 p.m.

When fast-talking Harold Hill turns up in town, you know there’s going to be trouble right here in River City.  With his big talk of brass bands, the only person who doesn’t buy his con-man charm is the sadder-but-wiser town librarian, Marian.  Funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man’s iconic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads will leave your entire family humming such familiar tunes as “Ya Got Trouble,” “Gary, Indiana” and “’Till There Was You.”

“The music is truly wonderful,” The Spartanburg Little Theatre Executive Artistic Director and play’s director Jay Coffman said. “Each character in the show is unforgettably endearing and quirky. The Music Man is one of those intergenerational classics that theatergoers of all ages will love.”

Tickets to The Music Man can be purchased through the Ticket Office at Chapman Cultural Center.  Adults are $25, seniors are $24, and students are $17. Discounted tickets for groups of 10 or more are $20. For tickets, call (864) 542-2787 or visit www.chapmanculturalcenter.org.
