Come see our production of The Sound of Music on March 17th and 18th at 7pm!

Our all-school musical, The Sound of Music, has gotten off to a great start this year! Rehearsals are on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Mondays and Tuesdays are usually reserved for blocking and solos, while on Wednesdays, the whole cast is required to come. 

Elyza Tuan ’23 is playing Maria Rainer and Conner Hyatt is playing Captain Georg Von Trapp. We are still looking for a Rolf, but hopefully we will find him soon! Mrs. Juge, Mrs. Rios, and Ms. Fernandez are helping this production come together and be one you will be sure to remember! 

This is an amazing musical, and it has so many fun scenes, too. Rehearsals are super productive and fun, and the show is moving in the right direction. We have focused on learning our lines, and we aim to have them memorized by February break.

The Sound of Music was written by Maria Von Trapp, Russel Crouse, and Howard Lindsay, and first came out on March 2nd, 1965. What is extraordinary about this show is that it was based on a true story; it’s about the actual Von Trapp family who fled Austria during World War II!

Everyone has had so much fun making this show come alive, and as we near the show, we are getting more and more locked in. 

Mrs. Juge, director of the show said: “What is so valuable about a show like The Sound of Music is its uplifting messages: Maria teaches the Von Trapp family to relish singing and the magic in the mundane of life with music! (Like raindrops on roses!) and she teaches them to remain peaceful, faithful, and joyful despite obstacles. Beneath all the fun is Captain Von Trapp’s strong moral conviction to reject fascism, despite all his friends telling him to follow the crowd. Our audience should look forward to seeing how our cast portrays these beautiful messages through their incredible singing, acting, dancing, and technical skills!”   

We are so excited for the show, and we encourage you to come see it on March 17th and 18th at 7pm!
