It’s a goosebump-inducing, gorgeous production that fills the stage and the hearts of everyone who
Times are tough, spirits are low, and the world is in dire need of hope. Enter, stage left: a delightful
underdog—a good-natured, yet mischievously feisty, young girl. She takes on the world and, with an
equal share of moxie and music, unlocks hearts and changes lives through kindness, love, and spirit.
Like Annie and Daddy Warbucks sing, “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow!”

The citizens of River City have got trouble… That’s a capital T, that rhymes with P and stands for “Professor” Harold Hill. He’s a charming, fast-talkin’ traveling salesman who goes city to city starting youth marching bands. Hill promises to teach the kids and raises the money to purchase the instruments and uniforms. There’s just one person who can’t tell the difference between a trombone and a treble clef – Professor Hill. Everyone is simply enamored by Professor Hill, everyone except for the suspicious town librarian, Marian Paroo.
On a campaign to rid River City of the impending demise of their youth, Professor Hill condemns a variety of activities – including Mayor Shinn’s new pool table in the town parlor. Shinn, incensed, begins an investigation into Professor Hill’s true credentials. Marian sees right through Professor Hill’s marching band scheme. She’s ready to tell Professor Hill off until she sees her self-conscious little brother, Winthrop, shed his shyness when he picks up a shiny, new cornet. The trouble really begins when Marian’s heart beats a little faster for Professor Hill.
Get into a little trouble with Meredith Willson’s five-time Tony Award-winning musical featuring the unforgettable songs “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Wells Fargo Wagon” and “Till There Was You.” Don’t miss this classic, all-American musical for every generation.
