Stage and screen star Peter Scolari ("Newhart," Out Of This World, Hairspray) heads the cast of the Ogunquit Playhouse's production of the classic musical The Music Man, which begins performances July 20.

Directed by Ray Roderick with choreography by Jeffry Denman, Scolari will play Harold Hill through Aug. 20 at the Maine venue.

He is joined on stage by Julia Burrows as Marian the Librarian. Burrows was seen in Garry Marshall’s Happy Days at Paper Mill Playhouse and at Goodspeed Opera House; Company at L.A.’s Reprise!; and Les Miserables at Northern Stage.

Meredith Willson's all-American favorite, press notes state, "follows the fast-talking traveling salesman as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a town band he vows to organize — this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef!" Songs include "76 Trombones," "Till There Was You" and "Trouble."
