Spring Musical

The University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy is pleased to announce the 2017 musical—The Music Man!

There’s trouble in River City! When smooth-talking con man Harold Hill arrives in a small, tight-knit town in Iowa, he expects to dupe its residents with his elaborate moneymaking scheme. Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he will convince everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruit all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash from the sale of instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, don’t quite buy Harold’s story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he also finds himself increasingly attached to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town. Complicating matters even more, Harold is falling head-over-heels for the beautiful Marian. Funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best that will leave audiences humming and dancing as they leave the theater.

A classic, flag-waving, feel-good, American musical comedy, The Music Man is a crowd-pleasing show with famous musical numbers and a large range of roles for guys, girls and kids!
