The Sound of Music
The final collaboration between famed musical duo Rodgers and Hammerstein, The Sound of Music presents a tale of romance and political intrigue set in pre-World War II Austria. Based on true events, the plot follows the tale of the multitudinous von Trapp family and their singing governess, Maria, as she brings joy back to the house, falls in love with the stern patriarch Georg, and uncovers the sinister secrets planted in Salzburg's foothills. The show delights audiences with classic musical magic, enchanting ears with such beloved songs as "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," and "Sixteen Going on Seventeen."
New Bedford Festival Theatre's production is a homecoming of sorts—this marks the second time the group has staged the beloved musical. The show's return helps celebrate the company's 25th season, as a cast of both professional actors from New York and Boston and local talents bring the classic tale to life.
New Bedford Festival Theatre
New Bedford Festival Theatre is devoted to musicals. Since 1990, they have entertained over 200,000 audience members with Broadway-style shows that span the genre's past and present. Staples such as Cats and The Producers balance lesser-known works such as La Cage aux Folles and The Producers 2: Ultimate Revenge to enrich the cultural knowledge of the public. And their efforts have not gone in vain. The New England Theatre Conference awarded New Bedford Festival Theatre the Moss Hart Award for its performances of Les Misérables and Hairspray.
