This classic musical from Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II is the fourth production of Starlight's 2014 Broadway season. It opens July 25 and runs through July 31. A special Monday night performance is scheduled for July 28. All performances begin at 8 p.m.
The Sound of Music tells the story of the stern Captain von Trapp discovering a new love for his children when a free-spirited governess, Maria, brings laughter and music back into their lives. Set in Austria in the months before the 1938 Anschluss that ultimately developed into World War II, the musical is the final collaboration of Rodgers and Hammerstein. It opened on Broadway in 1959 and has been revived numerous times since.
