Stadium Theatre Audition Dates
The Sound of Music
RSVP & Get Reminders on Facebook
Beloved by generations of audiences worldwide, The Sound of Music tells the inspiring true story of the von Trapp family and their escape from Austria during the rise of Nazism. When aspiring nun Maria proves too high-spirited for convent life, she’s dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of widowed naval captain Georg von Trapp. She brings much-needed love and joy to the family—and the widowed captain—and transforms their world and hers through the power of music. But the looming threat of Nazi Germany’s invasion of their native Austria darkens their future. This family favorite includes the well-known songs “My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Climb Every Mountain,” and, of course, “The Sound of Music.” The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
