with old accomplice Marcellus Washburn (played by Judson Wright) helping him with the scam. Hill figures he’s home free until he is captivated and morally transformed by the townsfolk. Along the way he falls in love with the town’s lovely librarian, Marian Paroo (played by Heatherly Nelson), and inspires all with the joy of music.
