2024 Spring Musical: THE MUSIC MAN

Alumni & Friends VIP Night

Apr 13, 2024
05:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Pacific Auditorium

HIU + SPERO Program for the Performing Arts proudly present Meredith Willson’s Tony Award-winning Broadway musical comedy, The Music Man, under the direction of HIU alumna, Ember Williams (BM '00). HIU's annual musicals are a popular event for the local community as well as alumni and friends of the University. 

This rollicking story follows the 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 – 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 local librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
