Tonight I ran across a little book that I forgot that I had.
The book brought back some good memories.
The musical debuted in 1957 and in 1962 it was made into a movie. To go along with the movie Meredith Wilson also wrote a novel.
Why does it bring back memories?
When I was a senior in high school our school play was The Music Man. I was the Conductor, one of the boys in the band and also the student director. When you go to school in a small town you often take on multiple roles and duties in plays or other school activities.
I have so many memories of practices and the actual performances. Some are good and others not so good 🙂
I can still sing almost all the songs from memory. I may need a little prompt, but they are there.
The Music Man has also been in my thoughts since I have friends who run a summer camp where they produce a musical each year. This year their production will be The Music Man.
My friend who leads the trip to Lachish is in the musical so perhaps I can help him practice his songs during the trip.
Do you have memories of a play or musical that you were in?
