The Music Man

Sep 7, 2017 - Nov 5, 2017

We open our Season with the show that started it all – the show that opened Candlelight 10 years ago.  Winner of our Patron’s Choice poll for the show you wanted most to see. By turns funny, warm, romantic and touching, Meredith Willson’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy The Music Man is family entertainment at its best.  


The Music Manfollows 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.
