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. 23-26, 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 town?
