Q&A: NCHS Theatre’s ‘The Music Man’ Opens March 9

New Canaan High School Theatre’s winter musical, “The Music Man,” opens March 9 (tickets here). We put some questions to two people involved in the production—NCHS senior Andrew Dooley, who plays the lead role of Harold Hill, and Kate Simone, a 2005 NCHS graduate and professional actress who is directing the show. Here’s our back-and-forth. New Canaanite: What led New Canaan High School Theatre to choose “The Music Man” for its winter musical this year? Kate Simone: The high school chose to produce The Music Man because it’s an American classic and it’s always a crowd pleaser.
