I am pleased to announce I have accepted an offer to perform in the upcoming production of The Sound of Music at Casa Mañana in Fort Worth. I will be part of the male ensemble in the legendary Rodgers & Hammerstein musical running September 11 – 19, 2010 for a total of 12 performances.
When Maria proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Through her music and singing she soon wins the children’s trust and their father’s affection. Maria and the Captain find themselves falling in love, but world events take precedent as Austria comes under the control of the Nazis. This show is suitable for all audiences.
The Sound of Music … is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Many songs from the musical have become standards, including the title song “The Sound of Music“, “Edelweiss“, “My Favorite Things“, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” and “Do-Re-Mi“.
The original Broadway production, starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel, opened in November 1959, and the show has enjoyed numerous productions and revivals since then. It has also been made into an Academy Award-winning 1965 film musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. The Sound of Music was the final musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein; Hammerstein died of cancer nine months after the Broadway premiere.
