The Classic Musical “The Music Man Jr” Marches Onstage at Kaufman Auditorium!
Tickets are now on sale for Lake Superior Youth Theatre’s “The Music Man Jr.” playing at Kaufman Auditorium in Marquette Friday, October 17, 2014 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.. 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. Featuring favorite songs such as “76 Trombones”, “Goodnight My Someone”, and “Till There Was You” this show is sure to be a treat for the entire family.
The Lake Superior Youth Theatre cast contains 62 cast members youth preschool to 8th grade led by Directors, Nikke Nason, Choreographer Jill Grundstrom along with Mallory Grugin and Aspen Talsma, and Vocal Direction by Jeff Bruning.
The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill (played by Will Guter) as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize. The catch? 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 (played by Megan Ludwig), whose belief in Harold’s powers just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself. Funny, warm, romantic and touching, “The Music Man Jr.” is family entertainment at its best– a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!
The Lake Superior Youth Theatre's mission is to empower young people to maximize their potential through performance arts training and the creation of outstanding theatrical and musical art while having fun and feeling safe in doing so. Previous productions in the past year have included “Narnia”, "Seussical Jr.", and "Kids Sing Broadway".
Kaufman Auditorium is located in Graveraet School at 611 N. Front St., Marquette.
