In Austria, 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power.
StoryBook Theatre is thrilled to bring back one of the most beloved musicals of all time for the holiday season!
Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do Re Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. Based on Maria Augusta Trapp’s memoir, the inspirational story follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.
Presented in concert format, with a full cast and live orchestra, the show is planned to be presented at 50% capacity in the Beddington Theatre Arts Centre space. Should provincial restrictions be lifted, more seats may be made available.
“The sentiments of The Sound of Music are genuine and are presented, unabashedly and effectively, in the show’s music, lyrics and dialogue… It is uplifting theatre, appealing successfully and without apology to the better side of our natures.”
– Douglas J. Keating, The Philadelphia Inquirer.
