Not all plans march to the beat of the drummer. This is true
for "Professor" Harold Hill, a quick-speaking transient
salesman who poses as a marching band outfitter and
instructor in the small town of River City, Iowa, in 1912. The
town, hesitant at first to accept the new-comer, falls victim to
the professor's schemes. The local librarian, however, is not
so easily swayed, doing some detective work to expose the
professor's fraud. She has a change of heart after watching her
brother blossom as a result of this fictitious band. Can love
and a librarian change this con man's ways?
Apr. 24-26, May 1-3 & 8-10
Starting a new life is never easy, especially when moving
from the big-city life in Chicago to the small town of
Beaumont. Ren has a major culture shock when he finds
himself in disagreement with the ultra conservative, spiritual
town that has put a ban on dancing. He makes quite the
reputation for himself as a "trouble-make"; he vows to break
the dancing ban and to reawaken the town. Ren faces road
blocks along the way, but eventually both he and Rev Moore
let down their guards and teach each other vital life lessons.
Do you dare to "cut footloose" with Ren and the rest of the
Summer Theatre Academy will be returning to The
Columbian Theatre stage! This production is a town favorite
and always fills up fast. Summer Theatre Academy gives an
opportunity to kids in the local area to branch out and find
their love for the theatre arts. Come see how far they have
come for only rehearsing for a single month!
