Actress Shirley Jones will return to Oklahoma for a special celebration of a favorite American musical. The actress visited Tulsa for a screening of the film Elmer Gantry last year. This time, Jones will be in costume and on stage at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City, for The Music Man in Concert – a one-night concert performance of the beloved Meredith Wilson musical play. The production stars Jones along with Patrick Cassidy as fast-talking salesman Harold Hill and a cast playing the good citizens of River City. Period costumes and a live orchestra move the concert through the story of romance and the necessity of music, but the music is the highlight of an evening that includes the unforgettable score and songs such as “Til There Was You,” “76 Trombones” and “Trouble.” The Music Man in Concert will be at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 29.
