"THE SOUND OF MUSIC"
An exalted ex-Navy Officer from Austria, Captain Georg von Trapp takes on a new governess, Maria Rainer, a soon to be nun too free-spirited for any convent, who is sent by the Mother Abbess from Nonnberg Abbey to look after the Captain's over-disciplined offspring. The rebellious children first reject Maria, then learn to love her free-spirited nature because she is able to introduce music and freedom to the children, and eventually to their father as well. But when Captain von Trapp does not agree with Austria's position in the war, they must flee from the Nazis who want to tear his new family apart.
Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens...The Sound of Music fills the air at Pensacola Little Theatre this summer with four big weekends of Music, Mountains and Mayhem! Come out and enjoy timeless songs like My Favorite Things, Edelweiss, Climb Evry Mountain and Do Re Mi. The show will run July 25-27, 31 & August 1-3, 8-10 and 15-17. So gather the family and escape on this musical adventure to the Austrian Alps with The Family von Trapp. The show is rated G and will be helmed by director Kathy Holsworth and music director Ginger Caro. A huge thank you goes out to Treehouse Series Sponsor Andrews Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine and our Show Sponsor Hancock Bank. This show is a combination production of PLTs Mainstage and Treehouse Series.
