Production Description

Casting "The Sound of Music." Production Manager states: "Following the great success of our very first production last December, 'Annie,' Burbank Community Theater is very proud to announce the next show. 'The Sound of Music' is the unforgettable story of Maria, Captain von Trapp, and the seven children who struggle to maintain their ideals in Nazi-invaded Austria during World War II. This production is filled with classic numbers such as 'Do-Re-Mi,' 'My Favorite Things,' 'Edelweiss,' and 'Sixteen Going On Seventeen.' There are prominent roles for actors of all ages and a large ensemble including children and adults. The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a young nun proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theater. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time."
