WORCESTER — Petersham resident Hunter Wojcik will perform in “The Music Man JR” presented by the The Hanover Theatre Pre-Teen Youth Summer Program on Saturday, Aug. 10, at 2 and 6 p.m. Wojcik plays the character Oliver Hix.

Based on Meredith Willson's six-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. features some of musical theater’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance. It’s family entertainment at its best, a bold, brassy show.

Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he has “76 trombones” in tow. Can , uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure?

The story follows the fast-talking Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? 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, whose belief in Harold just might help him succeed.

Tickets to The Music Man JR. are $15. Reservations are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877-571-7469 or at The Hanover Theatre box office 2 Southbridge St. in downtown Worcester.

The Hanover Theatre has entertained more than 2 million patrons with world-class performances and headlining acts including Broadway hits (“Jersey Boys,” “Kinky Boots,” “Something Rotten!”), comedians (Dave Chappelle, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld), musical acts (Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Tony Bennett) and everything in between (“A Christmas Carol,” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Alton Brown, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson).

After 10 seasons, the award-winning, historic theater continues to establish its place as a world-class performing arts venue, acting as a catalyst for the economic development of downtown Worcester. The Hanover Theatre’s facilities at 551 Main St. house function spaces, offices and The Hanover Theatre Conservatory.
