The Sound of Music Information

About the Show:

The Sound of Music is one of the most beloved and enduring stories of all time. It is based on a 1956 German film (Die Trapp-Familie), which was in turn based on the real-life autobiography of Maria von Trapp. The original Broadway production, starring Mary Martin and featuring a score by the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein, debuted on November 16, 1959 to mostly positive reviews and ran for 1,443 performances, closing on June 15, 1963. A national tour, originally starring Florence Henderson, ran from February 27, 1961 to November 23, 1963, and 1998 brought a Broadway revival. But the most popular incarnation of the story is without question the iconic 1965 film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. It remains the third all-time highest-grossing movie, behind Gone with the Wind and Star Wars.

The Sound of Music has been touching audiences for decades with songs like "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Edelweiss," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," "So Long, Farewell," and, of course, the title song. Order your Sound of Music tickets right away to experience these timeless songs and one of the most cherished stories of all time.

Plot Synopsis:

In Salzburg, Austria, the nuns at the Nonnberg Abbey are busy with prayer while one of the postulants, Maria Rainer, is off on a mountainside singing and longing for the carefree days of her youth. When she returns, she apologizes for running off, and the Mother Abbess suggests that she spend some time outside of the abbey to decide whether she is really ready for a life of religious devotion. She sends her away to look after the children of the widowed Captain Georg von Trapp.

When Maria arrives at the von Trapp home, the Captain marches the children out to greet her. Shocked by his strict approach and their serious nature, she gets them alone and teaches them some simple music to lighten them up. Later, a teenaged messenger boy named Rolf arrives and meets with oldest daughter Liesl in the garden. They sing a song together and he leaves her walking on air. But when she realizes how late it is, Liesl tries to sneak back into the house only to be discovered by Maria. She decides not to punish her and comforts the other children through a thunderstorm.

A month later, Captain von Trapp arrives with Baroness Elsa Schrader and friend Max Detweiler. When Rolf enters and greets them with "Heil," the Captain sends him away in anger, saying that he is proudly Austrian, not German. Maria enters, playing with the children, who are wearing the new clothes she has made for them. The Captain orders them to change back into their uniforms and orders her back to the abbey. But when the children begin to sing, he is touched and asks Maria to stay.

The Captain has a party to formally introduce Elsa, where guests discuss the German occupation of Austria. When the Captain steps in to help Maria teach young Kurt a dance, they discover that they have feelings for one another. The Captain abruptly asks the children to say goodnight to the guests and head off to bed. As they sing their goodnight song, Maria slips away with her bags and heads back to the abbey. Once there, she says that she is ready to devote herself to God. But the Mother Abbess says that she can not run away from her feelings; she must confront the Captain, explore her emotions, and discover her true purpose in life.

With Maria's task set, she returns to the von Trapp villa. It's clear that she and the Captain have fallen in love, but can she form a healthy relationship with him and ensure a life of happiness for the children? The impending threat of German occupation threatens everything this family holds dear, but their love for one another is stronger than any army.
