Our story is set in July 1912, when a traveling salesman, “Professor” Harold Hill, arrives in River City, Iowa. Intrigued by the challenge of swindling the famously stubborn natives of Iowa, Hill convinces the townspeople of River City to buy instruments and uniforms for their youngsters in order to save them from getting into trouble.  As the story unfolds, chaos ensues as Hill’s credentials are questioned by Marian Paroo, Mayor Shinn, and others.  As Hill begins to develop feelings for Marian, he faces a difficult decision about leaving town.
