“Music Man” opens at Walnut Performing Arts Center

Walnut High School’s production of “The Music Man.”

Music is a big deal on the Walnut High campus. Just check out the new $3 million music building that opened this year.
So its appropriate that the performing arts department is performing “The Music Man” as its spring musical. The popular play brings a con man to town with his scam to equip and train a marching band.
Unfortunately, the scamp plans to skip town with the money because they find out he doesn’t know anything about music. Fortunately, the con man falls for the librarian, who’s intend on exposing his fraud. The show opens tonight at 7 p.m.
“This has become our biggest production, with 59 members in the cast,” said director Joanne Karr. “Many will be on stage at the same time in some large numbers.”
