The Music Man is set to take to the stage at the Marshall Auditorium at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Presented by the Clovis Community College Cultural Arts Series, The Music Man is the tale of a fast-talking con artist who tries to take advantage of a small Iowa town only to fall for a woman.

Winner of six Tony awards, including Best Musical, the play first opened in 1957.

Harold Hill is a traveling salesman who cons the residents of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boy’s band he’s going to put together.

But his plan goes awry when he falls in love with Marian, the town librarian, and the community catches on to his plans.

Described as family fun, The Music Man is a Broadway tour performance.

Among songs performed are “Ya Got Trouble,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Goodnight My Someone,” “Gary, Indiana” and “Till There Was You.”

The Music Man is described as the perfect All-American musical, according to a press release.

Tickets are $20, $15 for military students and seniors and are available at the CCC cashier’s window, Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce and the ITT Office at Cannon Air Force Base.

Information: 769-4035.
