Join us for The Music Man!
Please join the Alumni Department on Saturday, April 5th at 7 pm to watch the HLGU Theatre and Music Departments perform The Music Man!

The Music Man by Meredith Willson, depicts con-man Harold Hill who arrives at sedate River City, Iowa, intending to cheat the community with his scam of offering to equip and train a boy's marching band, then skip town with the money, as he has no musical skill. Things go awry when he falls for a comely librarian whom he tries to divert from exposing him while he inadvertently enriches the town with a love of music.

"The Music Man is one of my all-time favorite musicals and I am very excited to have the opportunity to play Professor Harold Hill," stated Nathan Hammock, a senior music major and Hannibal native. "There is a lot of work to be done in order to make this musical a success and I believe between the students, theatre director Sabrina Brookshire, vocal coach Lori Scott, and orchestra conductor Mr. Frank North, we are going to have a fantastic show!"

"We invite people of all ages to come to a wonderful night of entertainment," said Sabrina Brookshire, Director. "The Music Man is a fun upbeat musical featuring loved songs such as Seventy-Six Trombones, Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little, Lida Rose, and Shipoopi. Rehearsal is underway for the musical and excitement is already in the air. We are also excited to have a few children and chorus roles filled by community members."

Admission is $8 and the evening will include excellent seating in Parker Theatre in the Roland Fine Arts Center, a backstage tour, and a chance to meet the cast and have them sign your playbill. This special price and tour are only available with the purchase of a ticket through the Alumni Department for the Saturday, April 5 show.

HLGU to Host Concert Featuring No Other Name on March 19!

Hannibal-LaGrange University will be hosting No Other Name in concert on March 19 at 7 pm as part of the school's annual Carroll Missions week.

Rarely does an up-and-coming artist impress industry and fans so readily as to be recognized with a New Artist of the Year nomination before releasing a single project. Such is the legacy of Nashville-based vocal group No Other Name. The 2011 and 2013 Dove Award nominated act is impacting audiences not only with its music but also its heart for sharing the gospel.

The group is comprised of three members, Sam and Laura Allan, a brother and sister duo along with their friend Chad Smith. With their energy to share the gospel, No Other Name has a way of connecting with their fans not only through their music but also their faith.

The concert is open to the community. Tickets are $5 at the door. HLGU students get in free with a student ID.

No Other Name will also be leading worship during the Carroll Missions week chapels on March 19 and 20 at 10 am. The chapel speaker will be John Edie of Alongside Ministries and Second Baptist Church in Springfield, MO. HLGU chapels are free and open to the community.
