Lycoming College, in collaboration with the Community Arts Center, will bring this golden age musical to life starting July 26 through July 28!

Williamsport, February 28, 2024 – The Lycoming College Summer Stocks mission is to offer an opportunity for middle and high school age students to work and perform under guidance from professional theater-makers so that they can bring new passion and skills back to their community and educational programs. Each year, the summer stock program presents a student-centric show with professional production values to a large and enthusiastic audience in the beautiful Community Arts Center. Lycoming College Summer Stock returns to the Community Arts Center stage this July 26 through 28 with The Music Man.

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic, and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

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 the curtain’s fall.

Tickets for The Music Man will go on sale Monday, March 4, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at or through the Box Office at 570.326.2424. Auditions, open positions, and more information about the cast and crew will be released on the CAC social media channels and website and the Lycoming College Theatre website,

The Community Arts Center is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pennsylvania College of Technology, a national leader in applied technology education.
