The historic Ariel Opera House is pleased to announce the formation of The Ariel Singers who, along with The Ariel Children’s Chorus, plan to present Meredith Willson’s hit musical The Music Man — this season marking it’s 50th Anniversary.  This Tony award winning Broadway musical and Oscar winning movie is about a con man (Robert Preston) coming to a small midwestern town to sell band instruments and uniforms to unsuspecting parents, but falls in love with Marian Paroo (Shirley Jones), the town librarian and music teacher. The show is full of hit songs and features barbershop music at its best.

Auditions for the cast of over 30 individuals will be held in the 3rd floor Ariel Chamber Theatre from 1-4 p.m. on February 18.  Cast members must be able to match pitch and sing either unison melody or soprano, alto, tenor or bass.  Rehearsals will begin Thursday, February 23rd at 7:00 p.m.  Cast members will include townspeople, a marching band, and individual roles for both children and adults.

The production will open on June 17, 2017.
Judy Cavendish, conductor of the choirs, will be the Musical Director of the production. Stage director, choreographer, and other technical staff will be announced soon.   For more information, contact Judy at (443) 204-5312.
