Springfield Little Theatre presents their young artists in "Music Man Jr." January 31-Feb.9 at the Landers Theatre, 311 E. Walnut. This American musical classic follows fast-talking traveling salesman and con artist Harold Hill to River City, Iowa, where he sets out to sell band instruments and uniforms for a boy’s marching band before skipping town with the money. His plans are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by the end of the show. The production opens Friday January 31st at 7:30pm, and performances are then scheduled for Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm, along with daytime performances Saturdays at 10:30am and 2:30pm and Sundays at 2:30pm through February 9.
