The Music Man

by Terrance Mc Arthur

Meredith Willson’s tribute to small-town America and small-time con-artists is one of my favorite musicals. I’ve been in four different productions, and I’ve loved participating in each one. Here’s the Blossom Trail Players production, coming like a Wells Fargo Wagon loaded with good things.

The Music Man At the Selma Arts Center

IN THE November 11 ISSUE

FROM THE 2015 Articles,

by Destiney Warren

I love musicals. Therefore, it may come as a surprise that I had never seen what is hailed as one of the most loved musicals of all time until this weekend. I’m always a skeptic of things that everyone else raves about (that’s just the snob in me) however the Raisin’ Cain Players production of The Music Man did not disappoint and I am a skeptic no more. You can still catch it if you haven’t already, with shows running every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until November 22 at the Selma Arts Center in Downtown Selma.

“Have fun at your play group.”
That’s what my wife says when I leave for rehearsals, on my way to the Selma Arts Center. I was asked to understudy the part of the bad-guy anvil salesman, Charlie Cowell, in the Raisin Cain Players production of The Music Man, and fill in for one performance on Saturday, November 21.

I’m going to start wearing makeup again.
I’m not changing my lifestyle, I’m just going back onstage for a full-scale musical comedy, which I haven’t done for almost 20 years. I’ve done shows, but they were mostly one-man programs at libraries, or they were in smaller venues where I had no need to alter or enhance my face with bases or liners.

If you love big, old-fashioned musicals, you will want to go see CenterStage Clovis Community Theatre’s production of The Music Man.
