Saturday Evening

The citizens of River City have got trouble… That’s a capital T, that rhymes with P and stands for “Professor” Harold Hill. He’s a charming, fast-talkin’ traveling salesman who goes city to city starting youth marching bands. Hill promises to teach the kids and raises the money to purchase the instruments and uniforms. There’s just one person who can’t tell the difference between a trombone and a treble clef – Professor Hill.  Everyone is simply enamored by Professor Hill, everyone except for the suspicious town librarian, Marian Paroo.

On a campaign to rid River City of the impending demise of their youth, Professor Hill condemns a variety of activities – including Mayor Shinn’s new pool table in the town parlor. Shinn, incensed, begins an investigation into Professor Hill’s true credentials.  Marian sees right through Professor Hill’s marching band scheme. She’s ready to tell Professor Hill off until she sees her self-conscious little brother, Winthrop, shed his shyness when he picks up a shiny, new cornet. The trouble really begins when Marian’s heart beats a little faster for Professor Hill.


Get into a little trouble with Meredith Willson’s five-time Tony Award-winning musical featuring the unforgettable songs “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Wells Fargo Wagon” and “Till There Was You.” Don’t miss this classic, all-American musical for every generation.

Our Hosts for the Conference

In 2010, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres was entrusted to a dedicated new ownership group led by Michael Brindisi, Tamara Kangas Erickson and Steven L. Peters, who shared a passion for the theatre business, and who also had a genuine devotion to this legacy organization. It was at that time that Chanhassen Dinner Theatres expanded its entertainment scope beyond the musical theatre for which it was known. They added a comedy club, a concert series, special presentations, and an enhanced wedding and events business. They also added the locally popular Brindisi’s Pub.  Their entertainment venue has something for everyone.


It’s the place where generation after generation comes to make lasting memories. And that’s their proudest accomplishment.
