Lake Superior Youth Theatre host “Music Man Jr.” Auditions for Youth Ages Preschool Through 8th Grade:
Lake Superior Youth Theatre will be holding auditions for their upcoming fall production of “Music Man Jr.” the musical.
Classic, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN JR. is a special adaptation of the classic masterful musical that is family entertainment at its best. The story 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 he vows to organize - this despite the fact 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 the end.
