Musical-theater fans get their Von Trapp family fix as the LifeHouse Theater presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway treasure, The Sound of Music, with a youthful cast of local talent. Since 1959, the Tony Award–winning musical has been a part of the cultural lexicon, enchanting audiences of all generations with its songbook of sing-along classics—including “Do-Re-Mi,” “Edelweiss,” and “My Favorite Things”—and its story of love on the eve of World War II.
Inspired by the true story of the Trapp Family Singers, The Sound of Music follows postulant Maria, whose free spirit prompts the convent to turn her loose to work as a governess for father of seven Baron von Trapp. As her sweet melodies create a happy mountain home and finally teach the local birds to stay in tune, Maria and the Baron fall hopelessly in love, but not without a few hitches. The Baron is engaged to someone else, Maria is still a nun in training, and Nazis are on the horizon. Meanwhile, the children fill the stage with song, dance, and identical outfits designed for maximum adorability. Family friendly and loaded with lessons about love and devotion, The Sound of Music is a natural fit for the faith-based, interdenominational LifeHouse Theater, which prides itself on producing spiritually stimulating works that enrich the moral imagination.
