Music Man taking the stage in Bonners Ferry

A national tour of The Music Man will be performed in Bonners Ferry

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho — An affectionate paean to small-town U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, in 1912 into buying musical instruments and uniforms for a boy’s band he vows to organize — despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the town librarian, with chaos ensuing as the townsfolk get wind of his scheme.

Filled with classical musical fun, tender romance, barbershop quartets and favorites including, Ya Got Trouble, Seventy-Six Trombones, Goodnight My Someone, Gary, Indiana and Till There Was You, The Music Man is the perfect all-American musical.

The musical is part of a U.S.A.-Canada tour, produced by New York’s Winwood Productions, whose credits include national tours of Cabaret, Bye Bye Birdie, Little Women, Urban Cowboy: The Musical, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and The Unsinkable Molly Brown.

The performance will be at 5 p.m., March 27 in the Becker Auditorium brought to Bonners Ferry by Friends of the Arts. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for 18 years and under, available at Mountain Mike’s Health Food Store or at the door.

For more information, call Friends of the Arts at 208-267-5256 or 208-267-1738.
