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, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.

Comedy: No Body Like Jimmy March 15-31 Call the Box Office for Tickets 352-746-7606

No Body Like Jimmy

Eloise Vanlandingham is running for Congress and a small gathering for potential donors is planned by Nigel, her less-than-scrupulous campaign manager, and her husband Ralph. Just before the first guests arrive Harold, Ralph’s college roommate, shows up at the front door with a problem: he’s driving around town with a dead body in his van and he doesn’t know what to do with it. The body arrives in the house just as the first guests arrive. What can they do? They dress the body up like a guest and call him Jimmy.

“No Body Like Jimmy” is a fast-paced farce about politics and about a dead body being the life of the party
