Music Man Jr. strums his way to Conroe

October 23, 2013 by  

The famous story of a fast-talking salesman, who travels from town to town conning people into buying instruments or uniforms for a band for boys, is coming to Conroe in Texas this month.

The Music Man Jr. sees the lead character pass himself off as the leader of a band, despite really having a very poor knowledge of music. The audience will get to see whether or not the man is able to change his dishonest nature and become a more respectable citizen.

The Crighton Theatre, the host of the play, is located on Main Street and is a youth venue with an after-school training program for children ages 4 – 18. Founded in 1981 in San Diego, it has grown to become the largest youth theater in the country. It is a non-profit organization funded via tuition, donations, and ticket sales to the events. The programs consists of children’s musical productions, Broadway musicals, and other favorite performing arts shows.

Drama, dance and voice workshops are offered as special two-hour classes for children, and scholarships are also available for those kids in need.

The Music Man Jr. cast consists of over 30 performers and dozens of staff and administrators. Typically, catalog printing is part of preparation for marketing performances like these. The catalog will contain the names of the cast, the producers, director,s and other staff members. They make great souvenirs for the cast and families.

The show can be seen from tomorrow up until Sunday, October 27.
