Stocker Making of Music Man

Press Release

Posted: April 11, 2013

LEARN THE STORY BEHIND RIVER CITY WITH “THE MAKING OF … THE MUSIC MAN” AT LCCC’S STOCKER ARTS CENTER
Meredith Willson wrote 30 drafts before he finalized “The Music Man.” Learn the story behind the story with “The Making of … The Music Man” at 2 p.m., Sunday, May 5 at Lorain County Community College’s Stocker Arts Center.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and can be ordered online at http://www.stockerartscenter.com/ or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at (440) 366-4040 from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of Stocker Arts Center. Take-a-Chance tickets are available at the box office beginning 90 minutes prior to the show as long as tickets remain. Take-a-Chance tickets are $8 and are available until curtain time.

The Musical Theater Project presents this entertaining back story with Bill Rudman and Nancy Maier as co-hosts, with George Roth and Laura Lindauer performing the songs introduced by Robert Preston and Barbara Cook.

Meredith Willson wrote 30 drafts over eight years before “The Music Man” finally saw the light of day in 1957 – and even then insiders were convinced the show was too hokey for Broadway. But Willson’s charming con man, Harold Hill, not only dazzled the small town of River City, Iowa; for nearly 60 years his 76 trombones have led a great American musical. You’ll hear all of the songs – including “Goodnight, My Someone,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Till There Was You” and “Lida Rose” – and the fascinating story of its creation.
