The Heartwarming story about Love, Courage, and the Power of Music
As the most requested show on our annual season survey, it’s easy to see why The Sound of Music enchants both the young and the young at heart. From its premiere on Broadway in 1959 to becoming the most successful movie musical ever, the hills will come alive with beautiful songs loved by many.
The Sound of Music tells the story of Maria, a free-spirited young woman who leaves the convent to become a governess to a Naval officer’s children in Austria during World War II. Maria transforms the home of the von Trapp family from a place of rules and regulations to one filled with joy, laughter, and music. In the process, she wins the hearts of all seven children – and their widowed father.
SONGS TO NOTE: “Edelweiss”, “My Favorite Things”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, and of course, the title song – “The Sound of Music”
