For the first time in history The Music Man will be performed in Budapest by an international cast of professionals and enthusiastic new talents. Under the inspiring leadership of director-actor-singer Peter Schueller, an American musical theater professional, The Music Man will be performed at the Ferencvárosi Müvelödési Központ és Szinhaz (Haller utca 27.) on 17, 18, 20 and 24 May at 7 pm!
Don’t miss The Music Man and treat yourself to a show full of fun for the whole family. “By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall.”
Peter Schueller was born in California and trained in classical vocal performance at the University of Southern California while at the same time branching out into Musical Theater, Theater and Film. Before relocating to Budapest, Peter was seen in numerous professional productions throughout Southern California. Some of his favorite roles have included Tony in West Side Story, Frederic in the Pirates of Penzance and Bobby Child in Crazy for You (awarded Best Actor in a Musical by stagescenela.com). Since being in Budapest, he has acted in, directed, music directed, and choreographed numerous showcases and performances. Some tv and film credits include featured roles in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Ron Howard’s Inferno, X Company, and NBC’s upcoming Emerald City. Classically, Mr. Schueller has been heard as the Tenor soloist in Mozart’s Requiem, Poet/Narrator in Schumann’s Dichterliebe, Tamino in The Magic Flute, Alidoro in Orontea, and as an understudy in SF Opera’s Dead Man Walking, among many other roles.
