2 South Walnut Street; Milford DE 19963

Meredith Willson’s 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 – this, 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, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
Enjoy this delightful piece of Americana that includes such memorable songs as “Ya Got Trouble,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “The Sadder-But-Wiser Girl,” “Lida Rose,” “Marian the Librarian,” “Pick-a-Little,” and “Til There Was You.”

The Music Man is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. (
Second Street Players is supported, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on
