FPD’s Spring Musical is always a wonderful performance combining music, theatre, and art. This year’s performance is Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” and features over sixty students in sixth through twelfth grade.
“The Music Man” follows a fast-talking traveling salesman, Professor 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– this, 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 music and the arts begin to unite the townspeople of River City — and when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.
The show is family-friendly for all ages. Performances take place March 8, 9, and 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the FPD Clark Fine Arts Center.
Tickets are $15 for premium seating, $10 for general admission, and free for FPD students and faculty. Purchase tickets online at fpd.booktix.com. Complimentary tickets for students and faculty must still be reserved online to ensure seating.
