Audition Description

There's trouble in River City! When smooth-talking, con man Harold Hill arrives in tight knit, small town Iowa, he expects to swindle its residents with his elaborate moneymaking scheme. Despite his complete lack of musical literacy, he convinces everyone that he is a brilliant bandleader and recruits all the boys in town to form a band, pocketing the cash for instruments and uniforms. The problem? Some of the town members, especially the stern librarian, Marian Paroo, don't quite buy Harold's story. As Harold struggles to keep his scheme afloat, he finds himself developing an attachment to the townspeople, who have all experienced a positive change since Harold came to town. Complicating matters, Harold is conflicted about fleeing town when confronted with a new-found love for Marian.
