Funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN JR. is a special
adaptation of the classic masterful musical that is family
entertainment at its best.
The story 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 he vows to organize - this despite the fact
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 the end.
