About The Music Man 

The Music Man has been called the All-American Musical.  Meredith Willson wrote the script and composed all the music for this fun all-age show.  It first ran on Broadway for four years featuring Robert Preston and won five Tony Awards in 1957.  The show has returned to Broadway multiple times with the most recent performances starring movie and Broadway superstars, Hugh Jackman and Foster Sutton, running through 2022 and closing January 15 of this year.

The story of The Music Man features a fast-talking con man, Harold Hill, who is challenged to take on the strait-laced and colorful characters of small-town River City, Iowa.  He has to face the stubborn townsfolk and especially River City’s librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo, who is intent on exposing him as a fake.  The musical features a large cast from 6 to 60+ in age, who all get to learn how these town characters interact with someone from outside their community, while dealing with their own beliefs about others in their own town.  The songs are well-known, Trouble (the first real rap song?), Lida Rose, Till There Was You, and of course, 76 Trombones.  The music is amazing and will include a 20+-piece live orchestra. The dancing is fun and lively, and the story is endearing and meaningful.  Indeed, the Hollywood Reporter said of the latest Broadway version, “…the show ironically feels urgently timely.”  It’s a great show that will be enjoyed by all ages.


Welcome to The Music Man on Oakland Temple Hill 2023.  It is exciting to present this wonderful community musical as a gift to all in the Bay Area.  The Music Man performances are open to all at no cost.  You can order your free tickets through the online ticket box office at starting May 20.  We are able to present this musical at no cost, because all our performers, production crew, directors, and producers are volunteers.  In addition, the beautiful 1,600-seat Oakland Temple Hill Auditorium at 4780 Lincoln Avenue in Oakland is being provided free of charge by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for these performances.

Community Production

The invitation to join cast, orchestra, and production crew of The Music Man is open to people of all cultural communities, ages, and religions in the Bay Area. Auditions will be held April 20, 21, and 22 (see audition registration in our event listings). We welcome all to participate in this artistic and uplifting community effort (you do not have to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to participate in or attend Temple Hill Cultural Arts events).

We hope you come enjoy our River City, Iowa and The Music Man at the Oakland Temple Hill Auditorium.
