‘The Music Man’ to debut at Beef and Boards

There’s trouble in River City, and it’s never been more entertaining than in “The Music Man” at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre.

One of the most beloved shows of all time, this six-time Tony Award winner by Meredith Willson is on stage Thursday, April 12, through Friday, May 25.

Fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill comes to River City, Iowa, where he cons its citizens 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 curtain’s fall.          

“The Music Man” made a star of Robert Preston on Broadway in the role of Harold Hill — which he also played in the popular 1962 film of the same name.

This classic has been hailed as a national treasure for decades. The New York Times says “The Music Man” is “as American as apple pie and a Fourth of July    oration ... a marvelous show, rooted in wholesome and comic tradition.” “An extraordinary warm-hearted, funny and captivating show,” agrees The Daily News.

Curt Dale Clark stars as con man Harold Hill in the Beef & Boards production, with newcomer Katie Sina in the role of Marian. The cast also features Beef & Boards favorites: Jeff Stockberger, John Vessels, Kenny Shepard and Doug Stark, among others. The show is directed by Eddie Curry and choreographed by Ron Morgan.

“The Music Man” has 51 performances scheduled in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $37 to $60 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, coffee and tea. Discounts are available for groups and children ages 3 to 15. Parking is free.

Call the Beef & Boards box office at 872-9664 for reservations. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays. Visit www.beefandboards.com for more information, including a show schedule.
