Highlands Latin School Drama Troupe Presents:
This year’s Highlands Latin Drama Troupe, with over 50 participating students, is pleased to present “The Music Man.” Trouble hits River City when fast-talking con man “Professor” Harold Hill tells the town he wants to form a boys’ band for the town, promising it will keep the youngsters out of trouble and morally straight. He convinces the parents to buy instruments and uniforms for their kids, but Marian Paroo, the piano teacher, discovers that Harold might not be all that he claims. Facing the truth can be difficult, but when it is motivated by love it may be the perfect instrument to keep young and old alike morally straight. Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” is an American treasure. This family-friendly, six-time Tony Award-winning musical has been entertaining audiences since 1957, and features such classic songs as “Till There Was You,” “(Ya Got) Trouble,” and, of course, “Seventy-six Trombones.” This musical is a fantastic blend of story, comedy, music, dance, and romance!
