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

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

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
