  • Details
  • By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson'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.


    The Music Man 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 that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that 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 curtain's fall.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Theatre in the Park is the largest outdoor community theatre in the country. Each summer they present a season of Broadway style musicals and host a variety of special events.


    The outdoor amphitheatre is tucked into 10 beautiful acres in Shawnee Mission Park with a separate entrance at 7710 Renner Road. Located just north of I-435 Highway and 87th Street, the facility is easily accessible from anywhere in the Kansas City metropolitan area.


    On performance nights, the box office opens at 6:00 p.m., the theatre seating bowl opens at 6:30 p.m. (allowing plenty of time for picnicing and fellowship), and curtain is at 8:30 p.m.


    Admission is only $8 for general admission, $6 for youth ages 4-10, and children 3 and under are free (but require a ticket). Visit website for more showtimes and information.
