The hills are alive at the Amarillo Little Theatre as we are very pleased to present the classic musical The Sound of Music as the second Mainstage production of the 2021-22 season. Featuring a huge cast of 48 talented performers, including 15 Academy students, this show is our Academy collaboration production and will be a delight for audiences of all ages.
The Sound of Music, the final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein, is considered to be the world’s most beloved musical. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows a high-spirited postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the title number, The Sound of Music has won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars.
