Their parents lathered them in sunscreen, snapped their photos and waved as the dozen young sailors boarded the skipjack Martha Lewis at a Havre de Grace marina. They were bound for a Chesapeake Bay cruise. In less than two hours, they would be back, maybe with a better appreciation of the area's complex ecology. While aboard the 53-year-old restored sailboat, the children encountered several indigenous bay creatures. As they sailed, they learned that oysters help filter the bay, crabs grow by molting and the length of a turtle's nails provide a hint to its gender - the female's are shorter, allowing her to dig deeper and hide her eggs.

"The fella sells bands. Kids' bands. I don't know how he does it!" Recently, the students at River Hill High School showed us how in their marvelous production of The Music Man. The musical takes place in 1912 and tells the story of a traveling salesman, Harold Hill, and his attempts to con stubborn Iowans in River City into forming a kids' band with Hill as conductor. Little do the townspeople know that Hill can't read a note of music. The sly and crafty character fools them all into buying their children the works -- instruments, music books and even uniforms.

To paraphrase Meredith Willson, "We've Got Magic Right Here in River City" (the Severn, that is) with the Moonlight Troupers' "The Music Man."This show is a visual delight with sets that are true to Willson's story -- based on reminiscences of his boyhood in 1912 Iowa. His first show was eight years in the making with more than 30 drafts and 40 songs written before it reached rehearsals in 1957.From set design to cast and orchestra, the Troupers have crafted a star-spangled production.From the sound of the first whistle, the 24-piece orchestra under the direction of Raymond A. Ascione is a joy. The score is one of irresistible charm, its simplicity evoking a bygone time.

Of the great musicals, "Les Miserables" may be the most spectacular; "My Fair Lady," the most sophisticated; and "Oklahoma," the most extravagantly tuneful.But for my money, the cleverest of them all is Meredith Wilson's classic "The Music Man," which is playing at the Summer Garden Theatre at the Annapolis City Dock.The wonderful story of the fly-by-night salesman who bamboozles an entire Iowa town into supporting his nonexistent marching band is a remarkable, inventive affair containing some of Broadway's most memorable melodies and the snappiest patter this side of Gilbert and Sullivan.
