The year is 1912, a period in United States history marked by optimism, patriotism, and a strong sense of community–particularly in smaller cities. The best known song is undoubtedly the stirring SEVENTY-SIX TROMBONES, sung by Harold as he paints the vision of a boys’ Town Band resplendent with the instruments and uniforms he has persuaded their mothers and fathers to buy. 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 that 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.
