The Sound of Music


December 12, 2019 – January 12, 2020

Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp

Sixtieth Anniversary Production! Beloved by generations of audiences worldwide, The Sound of Music tells the inspiring true story of the von Trapp family and their escape from Austria during the rise of Nazism. When aspiring nun Maria proves too high-spirited for convent life, she’s dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of widowed naval captain Georg von Trapp. Her kindness and generosity of spirit capture the heart of the stern captain, and they marry. The family’s narrow escape from the Nazi invasion provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented. Don’t miss Rodgers and Hammerstein’s blockbuster musical on the FAC stage!

Recommended for ages 6+
