About This Show

Blasting Meredith Willson to the forefront of American musical theatre, The Music Man was a project that had been many years in the making. The idea for the show was originally suggested by Frank Loesser who was fascinated by Willson’s tales of growing up in his small Iowa town. But it would be eight years before Willson was satisfied with the script. During that time, he would go through more than 30 revisions and write over 40 different songs. The plot revolves around “Professor” Harold Hill, a con-man who–in order to sell band instruments–convinces the citizens of River City, Iowa that he can teach their children to play in a magnificent marching band. But Hill doesn’t count on falling in love with the town librarian, and instead of skipping town before the instruments arrive, he is convinced to stay. The Music Man opened at the Majestic Theatre on December 19, 1957 with Robert Preston playing the role of Harold Hill and Barbara Cook as Marian Paroo, the town librarian. The show ran for 1,375 performances. Preston reprised his role in the 1962 film version.

Stellar customer service! I appreciate the employee taking the time to show me the different brands of stage makeup. And I was very impressed and grateful for all her knowledge of application techniques”

This is our go to place for all things costume! We love to dress up for any occasion that has a theme and this place has everything including expert advice from the staff! Weve never rented a costume or anything like that but we buy or prosthetic materials, make up and other costume accessories here. Definitely recommend it!!

Phillip S., Columbus Ohio

They have such great costumes and extras for all your costume needs all year round.

They have a children’s section as well as extras for any existing costume you might have already, and need to renew our replace accessories. They also have a large selection of costumes for your organization, church or group and have all the up to date make up and wigs for every need you might have.

Overall I would say that most any item you might need quickly you would have available year round and not need to pay extra to have it delivered from an online source.
Staff have always been pleasant when or family visits as well as helpful.
