The final musical written by super-duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, The Sound of Music is one of the most beloved musicals of all time.
Set in Austria in 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power.
The Sound of Music features a trove of cherished songs, including “Edelweiss,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” and “My Favorite Things.”
The production became an immediate hit with audiences worldwide. It went on to earn five Tony Awards for the 1959 Broadway production, which featured Mary Martin as Maria, and five Oscars for the 1965 film, starring Julie Andrews.
“To paraphrase the show’s iconic heroine, I have trouble remembering a time before my heart was blessed with the Sound of Music, and yet, its soaring melodies and timeless story remain just as relevant today,” director Seph Schonekas said. “To those, like me, who cherish memories of watching curtain-clad children dancing through Salzburg alongside Maria, I invite you to join us. I hope that you will enjoy the show as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together, and that you’ll share it with a new generation.”
