THE MUSIC MAN - One Weekend Only!

Sat., Dec. 16th @ 7:30 & Sun., Dec. 17th @ 3:00 

The Theater at SOMS, 70 N. Ridgewood, So. Orange

One of America's most cherished classics featuring a cast that looks like America TODAY!


Join us for a lively concert version of this timeless story of fast-talking salesman, Harold Hill, who cons the good folks of River City, Iowa, into believing that he can teach their children to play in a marching band.


A slice of Americana you won’t want to miss! Vanguard’s production of The Music Man is a true community endeavor involving REAL families from SOMA and the surrounding areas who share the stage with Professional and Pre-Professional Talent!  Vanguard's production also involves members of the Youth Orchestra of Essex County, and other local musicians, and a few special guests!


Don’t miss this holiday outing for the entire family!
