Plays, musicals and readings; one-person shows and full-cast productions; black-box minimalism and tromp l’oeil sets with trapdoors and pulleys. The Depot Stage hosts a world of creativity.
The Music Man
May 18 - June 10
Meredith Willson's classic musical marches into the Depot this spring.
There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian. 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.
