When I was five, my first professional stage performance was “The Music Man” starring Peter Marshall at The Hilton Brown Theatre (Starlight Musicals). So, as you can imagine seeing Civic Theatre’s production of “The Music Man” was very dear to my heart. The sold-out opening weekend proved that this timeless Tony Award winning musical still has the ability to warm our hearts today. I honestly can say that everyone in this production made the show spectacular from the singing and dancing to the sets and lighting this show was spot on. (No pun intended) The scenes came together beautifully and included action-packed choreography under the direction of the talented Anne Nicole Beck. One of my favorite Civic actors Steve Kruze nailed the part of Professor Harold Hill and co-star Mikayla Reed Koharchik was the perfect match with her beautiful voice and charm. Where’s Amy gives a solid two thumbs up to everyone in the entire cast from the young to the old who made this show a crowd pleaser from start to finish. I hope you will join the citizens of River City by rounding up your family and friends to be dazzled and delighted to the ageless tunes of Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man.” Don’t miss this show – grab your trombone and march on over to the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre and get your tickets today.
