A New Take on "The Music Man" at 142 Throckmorton Theatre

July 18, 2017

The Music ManThere’s trouble in River City when 142 Throckmorton's production of Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical The Music Man comes to Mill Valley! The Music Man tells the story of fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash, howerver are thwarted when he falls for Marian, the local librarian!

A partnership with La Familia, Oakland School for the Arts, and 142 Throckmorton, this production of The Music Man is inspired by Lin Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, featuring a diverse cast of actors and a mission to unite communities, build bridges, and create innovative art.

This weekend, Throckmorton Theatre and a cast of some of the Bay Area's most talented youth performers premiere their production of the Broadway classic musical Oliver! Based on Charles Dickens' novel, this Tony- and Olivier-Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to also win an Academy Award for Best Picture.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, escapes to London and find acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is arrested for a theft he didn't commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow, takes him in. Fearing for the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
