The Music Man is coming to the Clay Center, in partnership with the Charleston Light Opera Guild! The larger than life musical first opened on Broadway in 1957, garnering eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The Music Man recently re-opened on Broadway, totaling up to six nominations at the 2022 Tony’s, Best Revival included, proving that the Music Man is a timeless classic!


The Music Man follows traveling conman Harold Hill, who collects deposits for instruments and uniforms for the newly formed boys band, only to skip town with the money. However, he hits a snag when performing his con in River City, Iowa, when town librarian, Marian, catches his eye. Can Marian transform him into a respectable citizen before the rest of the town catches on?
