Professor Harold Hill, The Music Man, in Meredith Wilson’s musical-comedy of the same name, sings, “Ya got trouble, folks, right here in River City with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'P' and that stands for … Performing Arts Center, in this case. The Graves County High School production takes place in the district’s PAC, adjacent to the school, in performances at 7 p.m. Friday, March 9, and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, March 10. Theater newcomer Cody Beyer portrays the fast-talking traveling salesman, who sets out to con the small town folks and ends up falling in love with Marian the Librarian, played by musical theater veteran Emily Duff. Helena Jones as her mother and Colton Hayden as her brother believe in the Music Man’s magic. T. J. Lewis plays Hill’s old friend, Marcellus, who brings life to the stage as the cast sings and dances to his, “Shipoopi.” “When Alex Routen sings with Emily Duff, all I can think of is how talented and wonderful these seniors are. They will all be missed,” said teacher/director LaVerne Waldrop. She added, “Some of the students and a few parents have been instrumental in the construction and production process and we thank them.” The Friday performance is part of the season series for those who hold season tickets. Otherwise, tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door. To learn more, phone PAC manager Donna Gream at (270) 674-4824 or 328-4824.
