Description: Rockbridge Academy’s 2014 musical is Meredith Willson’s The Music Man. In this award-winning Broadway musical, con-man Harold Hill passes himself off as “Professor” Harold Hill, boys band impresario. He sells band instruments and uniforms to the good folk of River City, Iowa, explaining that the boys don’t need to touch their instruments, but will learn to play through his revolutionary “Think System.” However, the prim librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo, sees through his ruse. But when Professor Hill helps her younger brother Winthrop overcome his shyness due to his lisp, Marian begins to fall for him. Harold falls for Marian as well, and risks arrest by the town’s authorities to win her.
