Arena Stage has announced the casting of five local young people in its upcoming production of The Music Man, to run May 11-July 22 in the Fichandler Stage. Molly Smith will direct.

Having exhausted all 102 counties in Illinois, Professor Harold Hill gives Iowa a try and soon enough convinces River City they must form a boys' band. Soon, this Music Man has transformed the entire town.

The cast's five young local actors include Ian Berlin, 11 (Winthrop Paroo), Heidi Kaplan, 9 (Amaryllis), Jamie Goodson, 13 (Gracie Shinn), Colin James Cech, 14 (River City kid), and Mia Goodman, 10 (River City kid). Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
