Coming in Friday’s Dayton Appeal
October 4, 2007
Trouble, oh there will be trouble, right there in Virginia City this weekend with a capital “T,” which rhymes with “P” and that stands for a production of “The Music Man.”
Nevada Civic Light Opera will present Meredith Wilson’s classic musical “The Music Man,” at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City. The production opens with a Champagne Gala performance Friday, then runs Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 21.
The classic musical is set in 1912 Iowa, where con man Professor Harold Hill shows up offering to teach music to the children, despite having no musical skills.
His plan is to skip town with the money, but he falls for a local librarian and in the meantime infuses the town with a tremendous love of music.
