Presented by CYT Denver a local theater arts program
What do you get when you follow a fast-talking traveling salesman and a proper, reputable librarian? The Music Man Jr. presented by CYT Denver. This Broadway show traces the activities of “Professor” Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. Unbeknownst to the town, Hill doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef or a “C” from a “G”. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen.
Rehearsing since mid-February, The CYT cast of 74 is preparing a grand stage performance to open April 26, 2012 at the FRCS Performing Arts Center in Littleton, CO.
