It’s Time for a Musical: The Music Man in Concert

music man WEBJoin us as we go to “River City” and relive the antics of Professor Harold Hill. This summer we’re trying two new summer venues: outdoors at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival Amphitheater & Reserve, and indoors at The Egyptian Theater. But you can expect the same quality of singing as you enjoyed in The King and I, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, Carousel, and South Pacific. Just different locations, the indoor one in case you’d like to escape the heat of August.

Come listen once again to favorites like “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Good Night Ladies,” “Pickalittle (talk a little),” “Shipoopi” and many others. Professor Harold Hill will be portrayed by baritone Matthew Hayward; you may remember him as the Pirate King in Opera Idaho’s production of The Pirates of Penzance in 2011. Joining him will be local soprano Jena Carpenter as Harold Hill’s love interest, Marian “Madam Librarian” Paroo; and tenor Jonathan Hill as Harold Hill’s old friend and ex-con accomplice, Marcellus Washburn.
