Get Involved in Community Theater

Interested in getting involved with the Sigonella community production of The Music Man? Want to know more?

What is The Music Man?

This family-oriented fun-loving musical opened on Broadway in 1957 and was awarded a Tony for best musical beating West Side Story. Two movie versions of The Music Man were released – in 1962 starring Robert Preston and in 2003 starring Matthew Broderick.

"Professor" Harold Hill is a conman whose scam is to convince parents he can teach their children to play musical instruments. Taking pre-paid orders for instruments and uniforms with the promise he will form a band, he skips town and moves on to the next one before he's exposed.

The show includes a cast of 50 – 60 characters from all ages. We plan to cast approximately 20 adults, 20 teenagers (12-16) and 20 younger children (6 - 11) . Adult and teenage auditions are open to whoever shows up. The 6 - 11 year olds are being pre-auditioned in music class.
