Blue Water Theatre Company is excited to announce that tickets are on sale for our summer production of THE MUSIC MAN!

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a kids’ 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 he falls for Marian, the librarian. Can she transform him into a respectable citizen by the end of the show?

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.

"Happiness is…" LIVE THEATRE IN THE PARK! 

Based on The Comic Strip “Peanuts” by Charles M. Schulz
Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner
Additional Dialogue by Michael Mayer
Additional Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Directed by Sandy Boren-Barrett

Stages Theatre Company and the whole Peanuts gang is in Hopkins’ Downtown Park this summer for a live musical production filled with the heartfelt charm only Charlie Brown can deliver.

Meet us in the park as Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate life’s ups and downs through song, dance, and clever vignettes. Based on the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip, this delightfully witty musical is guaranteed to engage audiences of all ages. After all, no one contemplates Life’s biggest questions while playing baseball, grappling with homework, and falling for first crushes quite like Charlie Brown. 

In the end, the biggest celebration is found in the joy of friendship and knowing that Happiness is…what we make of it!

YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC. www.concordtheatricals.com
