Auburn Community Players present “The Music Man” at the Auburn Ave Theater in March.

Performances are 7 p.m. March 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9, with 2 o’clock matinees on March 2, 3, 9 and 10 at the theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

“The Music Man” 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 – this, 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, and romantic, “The Music Man” is family entertainment at its best.

Tickets are: (advance) $17 adults: $14 students, senior; (at the door) $22 adults; $19 students, seniors.

Order online, or call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, or visit the Auburn Community & Event Center, 910 Ninth St. SE.
