The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company proudly presents its final musical of the 2018-19 season, Meredith Willson’s THE MUSIC MAN.

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic, and touching, THE MUSIC MAN is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

THE MUSIC MAN is presented in the UTA Mainstage Theatre (Fine Arts Building, North Section, Room 174)located at 502 South Cooper Street on the UTA campus.

*Seating Note* Tables are filled in order of date tickets are purchased, from table 1-17. Because this isn't auditorium seating, there really isn't another solution. Adding people to your group at the last minute may cause all of you to be moved to a different (higher numbered, farther back) table where there is space. Timeless Concerts tries their best to make all seats good with a good sight-line.
