Separate audition sessions for the leading roles in East Central College’s summer production of The Music Man have been set for later this month.


Auditions for the roles of Harold Hill, Marian and Winthrop will be held in the John Edson Anglin Performing Arts Center on the ECC campus in Union on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 25 and 26. 


Gentlemen pursuing the part of Harold Hill will audition from 6 to 7 p.m. and should have memorized the song Trouble.  Anyone interested in portraying Winthrop should plan to attend between 7 and 8 p.m. either night and perform Gary, Indiana from memory.  Auditions for the role of Marian will be held from 8 to 9 o’clock each evening and those ladies will be asked to memorize Goodnight, My Someone.


John Anglin, director of ECC's annual summer musical, noted that auditions for the other roles will be held in April.


The Tony Award winning musical by Meredith Wilson will be presented at ECC July 24-27.  The Music Man is based on a story by Wilson and  Franklin Lacey . The plot centers around con man  Harold Hill, who poses as the organizer of a boys' band.  He sells band instruments and uniforms to the naive Iowa townsfolk, promising to train the members of the new band.  However, Harold is no musician and plans to skip town with the money without giving any music lessons. Prim librarian and piano teacher Marian sees through him.  When Harold helps her younger brother overcome his lisp and social awkwardness, Marian begins to fall in love and Harold risks being caught to win her.
