Pegasus Production Company, the entirely student- run theatre company at Christian Brothers Academy is presenting “The Music Man” as their spring musical. These students have spent countless hours on this amazing show from designing the set, to creating lighting designs, to directing the students in the cast. These students are now very excited to share this show with the community.
The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
There are 6 chances to experience this production including their first ever sensory friendly show on March 10th, in partnership with “Our Special Place,” an organization dedicated to aiding individuals with autism and their families.

*The Friday March 10th show is "sensory-friendly" performance geared towards individuals who are affected by sensory-input disorders, such as autism. During a sensory-friendly show, our "house rules" will be relaxed; audience members can get up, move around, and leave/re-enter the theater. Also, there is no expectation that the audience will completely quiet, and there will be an area for anyone who needs a break from the performance. In addition, our technical elements will be softened, in order to accommodate those with sensitive eyes and ears; the house lights will be dimly lit (to allow for safe movement throughout the house), sound effects will be lowered, and special effects will be at a minimum.*
