This family favorite will have you tapping your toes and singing along to memorable tunes such as, "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Wells Fargo Wagon" and "Till There Was You." River City’s got Trouble . . with a capital “T” that rhymes with “C” that stands for con. When everyone’s favorite con man, Harold Hill, steps off the train and into the lives of the stubborn River City Iowans his glittering scam unfolds before the audience!
