To the editor:
Kudos to “The Music Man” cast, crew and director.
How many opportunities does one have to sit with a smile on your face, tapping your toes for two and a half hours — while watching your friends and neighbors on the stage? I marveled at what this group of people created with their hard work, for our enjoyment. The familiar music, the talented cast, orchestra, costuming and set were perfect in my eyes.
At a time when the arts have been challenged, I am so proud of what this community has accomplished through strong music and drama programs in the schools, supplemented by the activities at the Lawrence Arts Center, for intergenerational experiences like this one. I feel lucky to be a part of this. Give yourself a treat and see this wonderful family production.
