“WE CONTINUE TO BE BLOWN AWAY BY THE TALENT LEVEL OF THE STUDENTS!

JUST LIKE A TRUE BROADWAY PRODUCTION.”

“We’ve got trouble, right here in River City!” Meredith Willson’s The Music Man is family entertainment at its finest. Under the direction of Jennifer Hudson, the Providence Theatre Department is delighted to present the six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy that has been delighting audiences of all ages since 1957. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – despite the fact that 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 Paroo, the town librarian, who hopes to transform him into a respectable citizen.

Set in 1912,  the classic big band tunes “Seventy-Six Trombones”, “Shipoopi” and “Ya Got Trouble” will definitely leave your toes a tappin’. This year’s cast of fifty-two talented students, ranging from grades three-twelve, was determined last fall by a panel of five award-winning national and local theatre professionals.  Senior Jackson Lederman makes his lead debut as the cunning con-artist “Harold Hill”, stage veteran junior Hayley Stoddard commands the library as “Marian Paroo”, and senior newcomers Caleb Prozzi, Addison Mills and Mac Hughes also make their theatre debut as “Marcellus Washburn”, “Tommy Djilas” and “Mayor Shinn”, respectively. Providence Theatre fans will remember talented veterans such as seniors Amber Waterman as “Mrs. Paroo”, Alyson Culbertson as “Zaneeta Shinn” and junior Robbie Goldstein as “Jacey Squires”. This year, hearts of patrons are sure to melt with the newest addition of spunky fifth grader Trey Murphy as “Winthrop Paroo”.

With brand new stunning costumes by Beverly Goldstein, beautiful set pieces designed by Scott Doughty, show-stopping dance numbers choreographed by Stephanie Riner, and creative lighting by designer Bill Boothman, The Music Man at Providence School is surely not to be missed.
