THE MUSIC MAN
July 29 - August 20, 2016
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Meredith Willson, based on a story by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey
Wickedly 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. 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 boys’ band that he vows to organize—this despite the fact 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, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by the curtain’s fall.
Presented by special arrangement of Music Theatre International

Make sure to come 45 to 60 minutes before curtain time, and you're welcome to see the show from our usher-reserved seating area near the doors after the audience is seated.

Do you and your family love the theatre? Have you been excited or moved by a PCT production, or helped move the audience by being on stage here yourself? For 20 years, PCT has been “making a mark” in Newport News and in the lives of thousands of people on the Peninsula. Now you can help us continue this tradition by making your mark at the Village Theatre!
Do you have a favorite seat in the Village? Now you can place your name on it! Your gift of $150 allows you to place an engraved plaque on the seat of your choice or any seat in the theater. It may be engraved with your name, in memoriam, or wording of your choice on a seat in the Village Theatre, home of the Peninsula Community Theatre; or you may purchase two seats for $250. The plaque can bear either your name, your business name, a memory of your favorite PCT show, or the name of a loved one who enjoys or enjoyed this historic theater. Plaques can also be dedicated anonymously. One plaque is available per seat, so we ask that you act today. Plaques are limited to 4 lines, with 30 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.
Please note that seats will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Seat sponsors must still purchase tickets to all events at the theatre, and they are not guaranteed seating in the chairs bearing their name.
If you would prefer to donate to the Annual Fund instead in the amount of your choice, your gift is always welcome. There is an area on the form to indicate your contribution. We thank you for your continued support of Peninsula Community Theatre, and for helping us provide quality theatre to the Peninsula.
