Sidney Anne Willson, a stellar multisport athlete who went on to help her son run a horse-breeding farm in Howard County, died in her sleep Tuesday of natural causes at Shady Grove Center in Rockville. She was 87. In addition to tennis, a sport in which she won tournaments all along the East Coast during the 1940s and 1950s, the former Sidney Adams played lacrosse and, after taking it up in middle age, excelled in golf. "I have never beaten her in golf my entire life," said her son, Art Willson, of Woodbine.

Live Arts Maryland's season-closing production of "The Music Man" at Maryland Hall brought a pre-World War I small town to life with skilled musical direction and several memorable vocal performances. Music director J. Ernest Green led the Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and cast members in the April 29-30 weekend performances of the musical, set in 1912, which sees a traveling salesman/con man change his ways. Composer-lyricist Meredith Willson's musical tale won the 1958 Tony Award for best musical, somehow besting Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story" that year to place Willson at the top of Broadway composers.

Children's Theatre of Annapolis is bringing Meredith Willson's "The Music Man," an autobiographical reminiscence of life in small-town America, to life for eight performances this month. Judging by the skilled acting, singing and dancing at a recent rehearsal, this classic American musical seems a perfect fit for the 35-member CTA cast, whose actors range in age from 12 to 18. In his first Children's Theatre directing assignment, Jose de la Mar exhibits great rapport with the kids, inspiring their self-confidence and drawing a high degree of professionalism.

Meredith Willson's The Music Man is a bit of old-fashioned Americana that was delivered by the Annapolis Chorale to its Maryland Hall audience Saturday. When the show made its debut in 1957, composer-lyricist Willson joined the top ranks of Broadway composers. His tale of Professor Harold Hill arriving in 1912 River City, Iowa, to sell marching-band equipment he does not intend to deliver is full of nostalgic charm. Romance enters when Hill's plan to skip town is altered by his attraction to strait-laced librarian Marian Paroo.
