Washington, CT - Glenholme’s gloriously entertaining, fun-filled performance of Music Man Jr. in their annual summer musical was by far their best musical to date. Based on Meredith Wilson’s The Music Man, the story is set in 1912 Iowa, tells the innocent and plainly moral tale of a charismatic conman redeemed by the love of a good woman. The performance was chock-full of well executed low comedy, glib romance, single-dimensional characters, and fantastically fun melodies filled with old fashioned lyrics.

The monumental full-scale performance is a significant achievement for the moderate summer population of the school. Nearly three-fourths of the students were involved at some level and their dedication, preparation and execution of the performance captivated their audience. The nearly 150 family, friends, staff and students watched in amazement from their hillside perch overlooking the outdoor summer stage as the cast and crew worked their theatrical magic.

As far as musicals are concerned, Glenholme’s Music Man Jr. is the crown jewel of theatrical performances. Each year the students expand their talents and create an astounding theatrical performance; on queue at every moment, from backstage to center stage, it clear Music Man Jr. has claimed a special spot in the hearts and minds of all.
