One of the most popular musicals of all time, the Tony and Academy Award winning The Sound of Music is Broadway legends Rodgers and Hammerstein’s last collaboration. When Maria leaves the strict convent to become the governess for the Von Trapp family, she has no idea that meeting Captain Von Trapp and his seven children will change all of their lives forever. Featuring some of the most beloved songs of all time, “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” The Sound of Music is holiday magic for the whole family.
"It's not just the perfect compatibility of music and lyrics that makes audiences flock unremittingly to The Sound of Music. The show can jerk tears from even the driest of eyes. And if that isn't enough, there's the opportunity for a gaggle of children to mesmerise with their talents and charisma. It's a near- perfect recipe.” — Peter Brown, London Theatre
