LA GRANGE PARK – The St. Louise de Marillac Parish Center will host a performance of "The Music Man" for two weekends this month.

Evening performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, as well as March 21 and 22 at the parish, located at 31st Street and Harrison Avenue in La Grange Park. The group will also perform Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. this Sunday and March 23.

Barb Molina, director of this year's spring musical, said "Music Man" was an easy choice.

"It's just one of the best loved musicals," Molina said. "And it has some of the most popular songs theater has to offer. It's going to make for a really good family friendly show."

Tickets for a performance are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $6 for children who are 12 years old or younger.

The church group, run like a community theater group, according to Molina, has been practicing hard for the show.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing the audience's reaction to what we've been working on," Molina said. "I just hope the audience enjoys it as much as we enjoy performing it."
