At Monticello Middle School Auditorium in Cleveland Heights
If you’re looking for an entertaining and meaningful activity to get 2017 off to a good start, you should consider attending a performance of Music Man at Monticello Middle School in Cleveland Heights. It opens on Saturday, October 22, 2016 and closes on Sunday, October 30, 2016.
We are so delighted to bring such a classic American musical theater show to our stage. With extremely talented kids from local areas which include Cleveland Heights, University Heights, and Shaker Heights among many other suburbs in the Cleveland area, we are ready to transform the theater into the small Midwest neighborhood of River City, Iowa. They will take you back to the simpler times where community and family were the paramount values which society lived by.
The show is directed by Kelly Monaghan, with music direction by Stacy Bolton and includes 68 actors in 1st through 12th grades. The lead cast includes Brian Tuohey as Harold Hill and Courtney Foerg as Marian. The stage manager, the person who coordinates all the moving parts to bring this production to life, is Cleveland Heights resident Claudia Lief Zalevsky along with assistant stage manager Jack Ina.
