CHS staged their production of Meredith Willson’s The Music Man March 22 through 24. When con man Harold Hill blew into River City he wanted only to hustle a quick buck and skip town before anyone gets wise, but local librarian Marian quickly saw through his phony band scam. Things got complicated when prim and proper Marian fell for Harold after he helped her socially-backward brother discover his voice through the gift of music. In the end, a long-time swindler found redemption in love. Audiences were delighted as Chatham’s talented students brought a cast of colorful townsfolk to life with classic songs like “Seventy-six Trombones,” “Shipoopi” and “’Till There Was You.”
