The final collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein was destined to
become the world's most beloved musical. 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 won the
hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The
inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an
ebullient postulant 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 ofNazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the
entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

Unfortunately, the Christmas storm this past year
caused massive damage to our stage.

The winds destroyed the masking walls for the stage wings, and broke structural 
supports on both sides of the stage. The gusts also severely damaged the rear wall of the stage that provides the principal structural support for the covered backstage area. This central backstage space shelters the cast and crew during performances (and inclement weather), provides prop and set piece storage, and serves as the principal costume changing area during the show.  


Many thanks for your consideration and support! 

Come see the after this July!!!


We look forward to seeing you under the stars soon!!!
