August 30, 2019 | Photo Flash: First Look At THE MUSIC MAN At Servant Stage

“Servant Stage Company brings their biggest show of the year to the stage with the Broadway classic The Music Man performing at Lancaster Mennonite High School, September 6th to 22nd.

Featuring more than 60 local performers and a full professional orchestra, the cast also includes a familiar face in the role of Harold Hill. The beloved musical has been a favorite of Executive Director Johnathan Bauer's since he was a child, and he is thrilled to make a return to the stage with this iconic role. "It's the first show I ever saw, and really was the spark that ignited my love for musicals," says Bauer. "It's the perfect American musical, with such fun characters, a lively story, and one showstopping song after another." Though it has been several years since Bauer was on stage, he started his theatre career as a performer, and has performed with many of the Lancaster theatres. With songs like "76 Trombones," "Till There Was You," "Trouble," and "Goodnight, My Someone," the hit musical has been a staple of musical theatre since it debuted on Broadway in 1957 and Servant Stage is expecting over 10,000 audience members to attend the Pay-What-You-Will performances.

Servant Stage Artistic Director Wally Calderon will serve as director and choreographer with Kendra Bigley directing the music and the orchestra…”
