Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most glorious score sings its way onto the stage in The Sound of Music. Maria is a high-spirited postulant nun struggling to fit into convent life, and who seeks solace for her lonely heart in the foothills of the Austrian Alps. She is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven precious and precocious children of the widowed, broken, and stoic, Captain von Trapp. Inspired by the true story of the von Trapp family and their escape from the 1938 Nazi invasion of Austria, The Sound of Music features beloved and memorable songs, including: “Maria,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss,” and, one of the most thrilling and inspiration finales ever presented in the theatre. Directed by Resident Artist Kitty Balay, The Sound of Music will play the Marian Theatre April 23 – May 10, then under the stars in the Solvang Festival Theater June 11 – July 5.
