Climb every mountain, ford every stream, and follow every rainbow to Lovejoy High School and see Lovejoy High School Performing Arts’ musical, The Sound of Music. The musical is considered one of the masterpieces of modern musical theatre and marked the culmination of the epic Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration, and will be presented January 18th-20th, 2018 at 7 pm.
Based on a true story in 1938 at the town of Salzburg, Austria, The Sound of Music is a story of love, family, and a life with music. Maria (played by Senior, Hannah Hansen), a young postulant, is too high-spirited for the religious life of a nun, so she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of the widowed Captain von Trapp (Senior, Jack Supan), a family that Maria slowly begins to fill with joy, laughter, and music.
The Sound of Music is a show for everyone, including beautifully inspirational music and characters that audiences will adore, such as Captain von Trapp’s “wealthy and sophisticated” would-be fiancée Baroness Elsa Schräder (Senior, Raegan Vaughn); the von Trapp children: Liesl (Junior, Marcie Sawyers), Friedrich (Willow Springs 8th Grader, Aidan Abramson), Louisa (Freshman, Grace Felton), Brigitta (Freshman, Catherine O’Brien), Kurt (Sloan Creek 5th Grader, Brock Bernal), Marta (Sloan Creek 5th Grader, Rachel Dobbs), and Gretl (Puster Elementary 4th Grader, Sophie Brooks); as well as Captain von Trapp’s great friend and music producer Max Detweiler (Sophomore, Zachary Joyner).
The Sound of Music offers beloved and iconic songs such as “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Edelweiss,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” filling the show and audience with both heart-warming and heart-wrenching emotion for this timeless classic.
Tickets are $12 for students, seniors, & staff and $16 for adults. They can be purchased at https://tinyurl.com/LovejoyHSBoxOffice starting Monday, January 8th, 2018.
