The Music Man JR. A 60-minute version of the beloved Broadway classic, adored by generations. Featuring a cast full of Gippsland’s most talented youth, this musical will have our local audiences captivated! 

Based on Meredith Willson's six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance.  The Music Man JR. is family entertainment at its best — a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter! 

Master showman Harold Hill (Most recently played on Broadway by Australia’s own Hugh Jackman) is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure?  The story 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 he vows to organize. The catch? 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, whose belief in Harold’s power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself. 

The Music Man JR. is full of unforgettable songs like "76 Trombones", "Shipoopi", and the romantic classic "Til there was you”, and is sure to have audiences leaving the theatre with them stuck in their head for days!
