The Sound of Music

Music by Richard Rodgers

Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp

June 23 - October 8, 2022
Randall L. Jones Theatre
Sponsored by
The Ashton Family Foundation

Maria, too exuberant to be a proper nun, is sent to the Von Trapp family as a governess for seven unruly children. There she teaches the children to sing and Captain Von Trapp to love, only to have the singing family tormented by the invading Nazis. Known and loved the world over, The Sound of Music reminds us that with hope, heartfelt compassion, and determination, every mountain can be climbed.
