DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE MUSIC MAN THIS WEEKEND MARCH 18-20 AT WARWICK HIGH SCHOOL!

By Laura Knowles

It all happens in River City, Iowa, or rather, in Lititz, Pennsylvania.

The Warwick High School Music Department will be presenting the classic musical, "The Music Man,” on March 18- 20 at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center.

In this slice of Americana, set in River City, Iowa, “The Music Man” follows the adventures of traveling con man, Harold Hill, who is out to fleece the townspeople with his latest scheme. He convinces the townsfolk to start a band by purchasing the uniforms and instruments from him. Never mind that he has no idea how to lead a marching band, let alone teach the kids how to play the musical instruments.

While Harold Hill might intend to skip town as soon as he receives the money, things get complicated when he falls for River City librarian Marian Paroo and realizes that her little brother, Winthrop, is thrilled about the band. Find out if he decides to carry out his con or live up to his role as “The Music Man.”

Meredith Willson's 1957 Broadway musical “The Music Man” is packed with memorable songs, especially the rousing “76 Trombones,” the romantic “Till There Was You” and “Goodnight, My Someone,” and the amusing “Ya Got Trouble” all about the evils of playing pool.

The cast is as big as this bigger-than-life show, featuring AJ Germaine as Harold Hill. There are actually two Marions, double cast because both teens were so talented, they couldn’t decide which to fill the role of Harold Hill’s love interest, Marian Paroo. Tori Guhl and Emma Walls will take turns in the role that was made famous by actress Shirley Jones in the 1962 award-winning musical film.

The rest of the cast includes Conductor: Zachary Hess, Constable Locke: Seth Pieklo, Charlie Cowell: Ryan Knudson, Mayor Shinn: Foster Shrom, and the Barbershop Quartet: Gannon Ziegler, Jacob Soslow, Jonah Lenahan, Chancey Jean.

Marcellus Washburn is played by Grayson Miller, with Tommy Djlias by Sam Beatty, Mrs. Paroo by Helena Campbell, Eulalie MacKecknie Shinn by Dale Rose Day, Zaneeta Shinn by Piper Sobon, Gracie Shinn by Lillyan Steinberg, Maud Dunlop by Holly Colvin, Alma Hix by Abbie Bender, Ethel Toffelmier by Grace Kegel, and Mrs. Squires by Emme McFarling. Young Winthrop Paroo is played by Carter Geesaman.

Performances are set for March 18 at 7:30 p.m.; March 19 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and March 20 at 2 p.m.Tickets are $13.75 for adults, $11.75 for senior citizens & students
Rear mezzanine & Left/Right Front: $11.75 for adults, $9.75 for senior citizens and students.

Tickets for “The Music Man” are available on the website. For group sales or general questions about the show call 717-925-0030 or email [email protected]. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door beginning 75 minutes prior to each performance.

SUNDAY Breakfast on March 6 at the Lititz Springs VFW POST 1463 benefit the Jesse Jones Composite Squadron. Breakfast begins Sunday March 6 at 8 a.m. and concludes at 11 a.m. The donation is $10 per person.

Breakfast on March 6 at the Lititz Springs Post 1463 of the VFW will benefit the Jesse Jones Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol which is located at the Lancaster Airport.
Lititz Springs Post 1463 of the VFW holds a monthly breakfast at their post home at 14 N. Spruce Street in Lititz on the first Sunday of each month. For March the proceeds will go directly to the local Civil Air Patrol squadron in support of their Cadet program, Aerospace Education program and Emergency Services program.
The Cadet program for teenagers, aged 12 and above, offers them opportunities to learn leadership skills, character development and physical fitness while learning about military life, engaging in search and rescue activities, and experiencing aerospace as a potential career choice.
The Aerospace Education program engages members in theories of flight, propulsion, and diverse STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) projects made available by the U.S. Air Force.
Emergency Services skills are honed by CAP members in preparation for search and rescue missions including disaster relief and other humanitarian activities.
The Jesse Jones Composite Squadron 304 meets each Monday from 7 until 9 pm at the Venture Jets hangar which is located on the Lancaster Municipal Airport at the corner of Lititz Pike and Millport Road. Breakfast begins Sunday March 6 at 8 am and concludes at 11 am. The donation is $10 per person.
Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 61,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state, and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 26,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs.

"The Adventures of Tommie Sawyer" at the the Warwick Middle School on March 9 and 10.

In a take-off on the story of Tom Sawyer, fifth and sixth grade students at John R. Bonfield Elementary will be performing "The Adventures of Tommie Sawyer" at the Warwick Middle School on March 9 and 10.
The performances are set for 6:30 p.m. both evenings and are open and free to the public.
This mini-musical, which is loosely based on Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” is set in a small town in Mississippi in the 1840’s and has many catchy and recognizable tunes.
The now-old Tommie, played by Yanki Kirci, recounts stories from his youth, along with favorite characters such as Aunt Polly, played by Jeweleona Hilton, Huck Finn, played by Reece Crank, and Becky Thatcher, played by Lilly Rivera. Most importantly, the role of the mischievous young Tommie as a boy will be shared by Tristan Clouse, Grayson Rothermel and Ross Weise.
Presented in a vignette style, the audience will enjoy hearing three stories of how Tommie weaseled his way out of painting a fence, managed to close down the school, and discovered pirate treasure.
All are welcome to join the Bonfield students in “The Adventures of Tommie Sawyer.”

Lititz's own "musical time machine" is starting its engine for the first time since 2020.

The Lititz Moravian Collegium Musicum will hold a concert at Lititz Moravian Church on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students and will be sold at the door.

As directed and conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Gemmell, the chamber orchestra will perform choral works from John Antes, Johann Gottlieb Nauman and Johannes Herbst, among others. The group will be joined by Millersville University's Tell School of Music Chorale for these selections.

Not only will the music be on display, but so will several string instruments built by John Antes in the 18th century for a one-of-a-kind "show and tell" portion of the concert.

"We're thrilled about the historical significance of this event," Gemmell says via e-mail. "(It's) the first time that all three of these string instruments have been on public display and, as far as we know, two are unique for being the first built in this country by a colonial American, including the first violin (1759, built in Bethlehem, PA) and the first viola (1764, built here in Lititz). The cello was built in 1763."

While the current Collegium Musicum was created in 2018, the works of the group date back to original pieces written in Lancaster County in the 18th and 19th centuries. In addition to the vocal pieces, there will be both large orchestral numbers and several instrumental duets.

"We are so excited to be back together again to share these unique musical treasures with the public," Gemmell says. "We were fortunate to perform our last concert in March 2020 about a week before COVID drastically changed all our lives. It is a blessing to be able to perform together in-person again."
