Full of small town charm, “The Music Man” features a cast of memorable characters and songs including "Til There Was You."

Bruce Earnest, chair of the musical theatre department and associate professor of musical theatre, is directing the production. Charles Houghton, chair of theatre at the University of West Florida, is the set designer.
