‘Music Man’ is Trollwood’s main-stage feature showThere were no “Seventy-six Trombones” or a “big parade,” but Trollwood Performing Arts School announced “The Music Man” as its main-stage musical for the summer.
The show was revealed Monday night on the West Acres Regional Shopping Center marquee.
Meredith Wilson’s 1957 Broadway hit won five Tony Awards and produced memorable songs like “Till there was You,” “Marian the Librarian” and “Seventy-six Trombones.”
This will be the second time the musical comedy has been produced by Trollwood. In 1991, Bob Richards, a former dancer with Gasper School of Dance, guest starred as the con man, Professor Harold Hill.
The show will run July 14-16, 20-23 and 27-30 at Trollwood’s Bluestem Center for the Arts in south Moorhead.
Auditions for the cast are scheduled Feb. 24-27, with an audition for third-graders interested in the roles of Winthrop and Amaryllis planned for early June. Orchestra auditions are Feb. 25.
Group tickets of 10 or more are already on sale through Trollwood, and single tickets go on sale June 15.
