Boothbay and New Harbor residents, 10 year-old Charlotte Ramsdell and her mother, Carol, are members of the cast of “The Music Man, which runs through this weekend at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath.

The Ramsdells, who are big fans of the Chocolate Church and Maine Children's Theater, noticed a post for casting on Facebook. So much of Charlotte's activities have changed in the last two years but theater has always been her joy.

Originally published in 1957, the show became a hit on Broadway years ago winning five Tony awards, Including Best Musical. This offbeat romantic comedy is a true classic of American musical theater. One joyous musical masterpiece, it is a treasured gem for all ages

This is a non-traditional, stylized version in staged and choreographed scenes. It is produced by the Chocolate Church Arts Center and Studio Theatre of Bath.

Performances are Thursday, Sept.15 through Saturday, Sept.17 at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday, Sept. 18 matinee at 2 p.m. For more information and tickets, visit
