Taking time out from their busy early summer commitments, these Island seniors enjoyed a day trip to see the Goodspeed Opera House production of The Music Man.
Boarding the early ferry and meeting at the Gelston House for lunch, they explored a bit of the town of East Haddam before the curtain went up.
Many thanks to Island Peoples Project (IPP) for making this trip possible and hosting the seniors for the day! And, thank you to Fran Roethgen for organizing the trip.
THE MUSIC MAN, Book, Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson
You got trouble in River City! Professor Harold Hill and Marian the Librarian march into their first appearance at Goodspeed in a rousing new production of this great American musical. When huckster Harold promises to save an Iowa town by selling the dream of a boys’ band, Marian is the only skeptic. Until she starts to buy his pitch. Fall in love all over again with “76 Trombones,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” “Trouble” and “Till There Was You.” A glorious classic that will have you parading in the streets!
