UTA's Departments of Theatre Arts & of Music Present The Music Man

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. This musical 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 that he vows to organize – despite the fact that 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. 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. Performances of THE MUSIC MAN are February 27th, 28th, March 1st, & March 2nd at 8:00 p.m., and March 3rd at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available online and are $12 for the general public and $10 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty & staff.
