NEWS: Rarely seen The Music Man is coming to Eastwood Park Theatre

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. However, it is rarely staged and Runway Theatre Company provide a rare chance to see this much-loved show at Eastwood Park Theatre from 14th to 18th May, every evening with a 2:30 Saturday matinee.
 
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 organise – 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.
