Come hear The Sound of Music at Merrill.
A brand new production of The Sound of Music is coming to Merrill Auditorium. The beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy®, and Academy Award® winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss,” and the title song. The Sound of Music enjoyed extraordinary success as a live television production when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December 2013, and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, starring Julie Andrews, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.
“The Sound of Music delivers on its legacy of enchanting each new generation.” declares The Patriot Ledger.
“Sparkling, Fresh and Lively” announces the Los Angeles Times.
The Dallas Morning News claims that, “Even if you’ve seen The Sound of Music before, it’s worth going again to see it this way.”
The Sound of Music features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp.
