But even with nothing but the lowest of intentions, he inadvertently brings joy into their lives and into his own life, as well.

The “con” is simple but effective.

Hill convinces the town’s residents that he can teach their children to play in a marching band, but only if they buy the instruments and uniforms he has for sale.

He then simply collects the money and plans to escape without fulfilling his promises.

The scenery and sets are also an item for the audience to take note of.

Set Design and Construction Manager Brian Charbonneau and the students have put together intriguing sets made from recycled sets from other SFHS musicals.
