THE SOUND OF MUSIC
March 13 - April 21
Music by Richard Rodgers / Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II / Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse / Suggested by “The Story of the Trapp Family Singers”
Come enjoy the world's most beloved musical! When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her rapport with the youngsters and her generosity of spirit capture the heart of the stern Captain and they marry. They return from their honeymoon to find Austria invaded by the Nazis. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland provides a thrilling and inspirational finale. Songs include “Do Re Mi,” “The Sound of Music,” “No Way to Stop It,” “How Can Love Survive” and “Climb Every Mountain.”
