Mu­sic was in the air at Boy­er­town Mid­dle School East

The Boyertown Area Times - - LOCAL NEWS - From Wendy Moyer-Dra­bick

The mu­si­cal Mu­sic Man Jr. took to the stage on March 8, 9 and 10 at the Boy­er­town Mid­dle School East. The show was the first for a mid­dle school pro­duc­tion, since the school just changed this year from a ju­nior high, but that didn’t mat­ter as there were plenty of cast mem­bers on the stage! The show was di­rected by Mrs. Mar­cella Bink­ley and Mrs. Jamie Cul­lipher and in­cluded an orches­tra made up of Mr. Michael Aga­tone (drums) and Mrs. Freed (pi­ano) to make the songs take life.

The show opened on the train with the sales­men talk­ing about a guy named Harold Hill, played by Jared Dra­bick, who goes from town to town and swindles ev­ery­one out of their money by say­ing he is start­ing a boy’s band and leaves once he has their money.

Cast mem­bers also in­clude Harold’s old friend Mar­cel­lus Wash­burn (Justin Knarr); the town li­brar­ian/pi­ano teacher, Mar­ian Pa­roo (Ellen Dunne); Mar­ian’s mom, Mrs. Pa­roo (Kara Bussinger); her son, Winthrop Pa­roo (Ad­di­son Moyer); Mayor Shinn (Joseph Carter), and ri­val sales­man, Char­lie Cow­ell (Owen See­mann).

It had all the catchy songs that you re­mem­ber, an en­er­getic cast and a happy end­ing. Ku­dos to show­ing why the mu­sic is al­ways great in Boy­er­town!
