One of Melbourne's better known music theatre Whitehorse Musical Theatre has chosen an old favourite with the October production of Meredith Willson's The Music Man. For those who may have forgotten, con man Professor Harold Hill deals in music instruments. By the time folks realise they're of no use if you cannot play them, he's moved on to the next state. But he meets his match in River City, Iowa in the form of a beautiful piano teacher.
Venue: Phoenix Theatre, Deakin University Burwood Campus. Season: October 17 - November 1. Bookings: 9878 2912 & 9877 4214.
