The Music Man
Weathervane Community Playhouse
Thursday, June 6th - Sunday, June 30th
Music Professor Harold Hill has arrived in River City, Iowa, in 1912 for the purpose of forming a boy’s marching band. He swoops into town and creates a false frenzy by declaring the local pool hall as the source of all things immoral. Harold declares that River City’s 'Trouble with a capital T’' can only be corrected if the townspeople fork over their money to him for band uniforms and instruments. The town embraces the charming newcomer and his marching-band scheme — but what they don’t know is that the “professor” is actually a fake. He’s only a con man just looking to grab a quick buck and then scram before the townspeople can run him out of town. But when Harold falls for Marian Paroo, the prim and proper town librarian, will he answer his heart and tell the truth before time runs out?

The King and I
Ohio Light Opera
At College of Wooster
Saturday, June 15th - Thursday, August 8th
Placing his hand on her waist and issuing the command 'Come!' the King of Siam and Anna launch into what must be Broadway's most exuberant dance sequence. The polka 'Shall We Dance,' together with such R&H classics as 'I Whistle a Happy Tune,' 'Hello, Young Lovers,' 'Getting to Know You,' and 'I Have Dreamed' all support an endearing, but bittersweet, tale of the clash between Eastern and Western cultures.
June 15 - Aug. 8, The College of Wooster, 1189 Beall Ave., Wooster, (330) 263-2345.
Ohio Light Opera
At College of Wooster
Thursday, June 20th - Friday, August 9th
Suave, sophisticated, and filthy rich, Cole Porter brought more of himself and his times to his stage works than any of his contemporaries. His double entendres - some quite risqué - were so cleverly integrated into his lyrics that they sailed right over the heads of the censors into the laps of his audiences.
Russia has sent the stern and ice-cold envoy Ninotchka to Paris to retrieve a composer, who, encouraged by his American agent Steve Canfield, is thinking of defecting. Steve and Paris work their magic on Ninotchka, but her Russian pride intervenes and she returns to her home country. Steve follows, but is detained for conspiracy to undermine the government. The immensely witty dialogue bristles with Cold War jibes: When informed that the composer Prokofiev is dead, a Russian official retorts: 'I didn't even know that he was arrested.'
June 20 - Aug. 9, The College of Wooster, 1189 Beall Ave., Wooster, (330) 263-2345
