The Music Man is coming to Barrie! I couldn’t be more excited for this! Hence all of the exclamation points!
But seriously, I’ve been a huge fan of this musical ever since my parents took my sister and me to see it live in Stratford. Then we got obsessed with the movie, fell in love with the songs and the dances. My mum and sister and I would sing the songs while we were doing dishes. I even asked my piano teacher to teach me how to play one of the songs. And one summer, we gathered the neighbourhood kids together and put on our own dance/lip-sync performance of the show, complete with costumes and props. Whenever we had company over we’d perform it.
Fast forward years later, we find out The Music Man is coming to Barrie and is proudly sponsored by Kool FM. It’s not your typical sit-in-a-theatre-and-watch-a-show type of experience. The show is taking over downtown Barrie, so the audience moves along with the show. It’ll be one of the largest-ever outdoor productions in Canada.
So obviously my family and I will be there for opening weekend!
