The Sound of Music
on Youth Presents "The Sound of Music"
FAMILIES LOVE RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN CLASSIC!
A whopping 50+ local youths, ages 5-18 showcase their musical theater talents in Spotlight on Youth’s upcoming production of "The Sound of Music," one week-end only, Thursday, March 14 through Sunday, March 17 at the beautiful, state-of-the-art Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton. This is a show for everyone! True family entertainment at its finest with all the memorable songs such as "The Sound of Music", "Edelweiss", "Do-Re-Mi", "The Lonely Goatherd" and many more!
Director Barbara Bloom of Novi says: "The Sound of Music" is the most beloved of all the Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals. It entertains while also teaching about a time in history that we simply can't and shouldn't forget. This gives our youth the opportunity to be involved in a magical show with fabulous, familiar songs and a timeless and a true story.
"The story is set in Austria, in early 1939. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for life as a nun, she is dispatched to serve as governess to the seven von Trapp children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually capture the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon, they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theater."
