THE SOUND OF MUSIC auditions July 10, 11

The final collaboration between Rodgers & 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 postulate 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 of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 10 at 7 p.m., and Monday, July 11 at 6 p.m. Callbacks, if needed, will be held July 13 at Bellevue Society for the Arts, 205 Maple St., Bellevue.
