The hills are alive for Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved musical as it hits the Mac-Haydn stage! The winner of five Tony Awards and five Oscars, The Sound of Music has held a remarkable position in the musical theater canon for six decades. The legendary story is a timeless tribute to the transformative power of love and music.
After proving too high-spirited for her life as a postulant, Maria, an exuberant young governess brings music, laughter and joy back to a broken family—capturing the hearts of seven rambunctious children and lightening the demeanor of their militaristic father. Set in 1938 Austria before World War II, The Von Trapps face insurmountable odds as their beloved homeland confronts the impending arrival of the dangerous Nazi regime.
Based on a true story, this epic classic is both thrilling and inspirational to audiences throughout the world. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do Re Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the legendary title tune, The Sound of Music promises to bring classic charm and provide a delightful musical experience for the entire family.
