Before the fraudulent teacher can skip town with the loot, Harold’s got trouble when he falls for the quick-witted, not to mention beautiful, small town librarian, Marian.  Meredith Wilson’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.  Come one, come all to reminisce or to discover the “Seventy-Six Trombones” and many other timeless songs from this piece of musical Americana.

Performances run Tuesday May 5 through Sunday, May 17 with performance times Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Fridays 8 p.m.; Matinees on Saturday & Sunday at 2 p.m.
