Woodbury met the "The Music Man" last weekend.

"The Music Man," produced by Woodbury Community Theatre, opened Friday on the Loft Stage at East Ridge High School.

The popular play tells the story of con-man Harold Hill who goes from town to town selling band instruments by convincing citizens that he can teach them to play in a magnificent marching band, but skips town before the instruments arrive. However, Hill's stop in River City -- the setting for the play -- involves a romance that he didn't count on with a local librarian.

"The Music Man" will continue with performances this week.

"The Music Man" will be performed Thursday at 1 p.m., Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Loft Stage at East Ridge High School. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, $12 for students. Children 4 years old and under are free. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit woodburycommunitytheatre.org
