They call him a “traveling” con man, but he’s really running from town to town to avoid trouble. Harold Hill arrives in River City to sell marching band uniforms and instruments to unsuspecting idiots. He’s always up to no good, but can he face the music when it calls? Dates and tickets here.

The Pirates of Penzance

Help celebrate Frederic’s coming-of-age, pirate style! There’s only one little problem… Frederic doesn’t really want to be a pirate. Instead, he wants a beautiful maiden to have and to hold, better than any treasure his former pirate comrades can give him. Dates and tickets here.
