The Watertown Players Youth Theater will be adding an extra Saturday matinee performance of their up-coming musical “The Music Man Jr.” The show has completely sold out its scheduled performances and in order to accommodate those wishing to see this special show an additional matinee will be added on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m. The show will be presented at the Watertown Players Theater, located in The Market, 210 S. Water St., Watertown.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $16 at the door and can only be purchased at Watertown’s Piggly Wiggly Supermarket. There will be no online sales for this matinee performance.
“The Music Man Jr.” is a condensed version of Meredith Wilson’s famous 1957 Broadway hit. It tells the story of a sleepy Iowa town in 1912 and the arrival of a super salesman, Harold Hill, who sets the citizens on their ears. It features a book by Meredith Wilson and Franklin Lacey and the show is filled with such memorable hits such as “Gary, Indiana,” “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” and of course the rousing “Seventy Six Trombones.”
The show is made possible through arrangement with Music Theatre International and also by a generous grant from the Earl and Eugenia Quirk Foundation.
Other up-coming shows include a Watertown Players Children’s Theater Workshop production of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland,” which will be holding auditions on Saturday, Feb. 9.
