Theatre Arts Division

The Stapleton Theatre Company is the Theatre Arts division of the Stapleton School of the Performing Arts. It is brought to you by the same team who operated the San Anselmo Town Players as part of the San Anselmo Recreation Department from 2001–2006. The same type of program, artistic quality, production values, instruction, nurturing and care that you came to know from the Town Players continues at Stapleton Theatre Company.

The spring show commemorates Bruce Vieira's 10th anniversary with the Stapleton Theatre Company. We will be presenting Meredith Willson's The Music Man, which is the first show Bruce directed with our company!

By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Wilson's six-time, Tony Award winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact 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 the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.

The Music Man, a community theatre favorite, is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations and one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads, which have become popular standards. It contains memorable songs as Ya Got Trouble, Iowa Stubborn, Seventy-Six Trombones, and the Wells Fargo Wagon. We invite children, teens and adults to join us for this rousing production. This is a great show for families to do together, as there are lots of great roles for all ages!
