The community (full of big personalities) buys into his scheme of a boys’ band including instruments, uniforms, and lessons, none of which the Music Man intends to deliver. But librarian Marian Paroo is onto him.This classic musical comedy is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation!

Rehearsals will begin in May 2018.

Performances run July 12-29, 2018 at the NorShor Theatre, typically on Thursdays thru Sundays. Please note there may be additional performancWednesdaysesadys (July 16 & July 25).

One Response to Auditions for ‘The Music Man’ are this weekend

  1. Hello…my wife just told me about auditions for The Music Man. I played Harold Hill back a few years ago so know the musical well. My work schedule as an elementary principal won’t allow me to audition for a part of that magnitude; however, I’ve sang in many quartets/groups throughout my life. In fact, when I played Harold, we had to revise our quartet so that Marcellus and I were in the quartet (he would appear at the beginning of the song, and I would leave at the end…it really added a cool dynamic to the show). Anyway, I’m a second tenor/baritone….if you are looking for individual men to try out for the quartet, I would like to come down and try-out. I realize you may already have a group in mind. I’ve performed mostly for Frostfire Theatre in Walhalla and Fort Totten Little Theatre in Devils Lake, ND (also a little in Grand Forks)
