The hills at Artpark will be alive with The Sound of Music in July as part of the summer-long celebration of Artpark's 40th Anniversary. The classic musical was first presented at Artpark in 1977, starting the tradition of major Broadway musical productions at the summertime venue.
This classic and endearing musical is based on the book The Story of the Trapp Family Singers and the 1965 film version starring Julie Andrews propelled the story to be the most popular movie musical of all time. It features an unforgettable Rodgers & Hammerstein score, including "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi" and "Climb Every Mountain."
The Sound of Music was the final collaboration of the award-winning duo, Rodgers & Hammerstein, who are widely acknowledged as the all-time 'Kings of Broadway.'
In 1930's Maria is a sweet young postulant whose free-spirited nature isn't suited for religious life so she is sent off to be the governess to a widowed naval Captain's seven troublesome children. Maria bonds with the children over their mutual love of music and soon she manages to capture the heart of the strict Captain as well. This heartwarming story with a thrilling and inspirational ending is the perfect summer theater family treat!
