This Weekend

“The Music Man” coming to Shelton Intermediate School

Gary and Francesca Scarpa’s Center Stage proudly presents The Youth CONNection in the American musical classic, “The Music Man”, this July at Shelton Intermediate School in Shelton, CT.

May I have your attention please, attention please! Don’t let your summer pass by without being part of a great tradition. Bring your family to see live theater and support a great organization at the same time. Gary and Fran Scarpa are producing another spectacular Broadway musical at Shelton Intermediate School at the end of July. It is a great and affordable cultural opportunity right here in Connecticut.

The classic American musical, Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall. Hit songs include “76 Trombones,” “Till There was You,” and “Ya Got Trouble”!

Show times are Friday & Saturday July 24th & 25th at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, July 25th at 2:00 p.m., and Thursday Friday & Saturday July 30th, 31st, & August 1st & 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $20, and can be obtained by calling 203-924-2622.
