The Sound of Music

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse

Directed by Michael Fischer

Don’t be a “Lonely Goatherd,” bring the whole family, even if they are “16 Going on 17,” to enjoy this beloved musical tale of “Maria,” the would-be nun who instead realizes she has found that some of her “Favorite Things” are the lovely children and lonely widower of the Von Trapp family. Your family will be “Do-Re-Mi-ing” long past the time we say “So Long, Farewell!”

Performances take place at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday and 2:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
