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.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC will open BSA’s 27th season Sept. 23, 24, 25, and Oct. 1. It is being directed by Samuel Hohman. Christine Turner serves as Music Director. Assistant Director is Ashley Dawson. It is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. It is sponsored by Mel & Jeanie Miller & Family.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 9.
