Sound of Music

March 16, 2013 7:30 PM-March 17, 2013 10:00 PM

The Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El Congregants are acting up again, this time in a six performance production of The Sound of Music March 9, 10, 16 and 17. How do you solve a problem like Maria? Will Maria marry Captain Von Trapp? Will the Von Trapp family climb every mountain? Find out all the answers and more when you bring your entire family to join talented congregants as they perform, sing and dance in this endearing musical, with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Opening night features a ticket package with Viennese Sweet Table after the show. Many songs from the musical have become standards, such as "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and the title song "The Sound of Music." The Beth ‘Hill’els, will indeed be alive with the sound of music.

The original Broadway production, starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel, opened on November 16, 1959. The show has enjoyed numerous productions and revivals since then, with a timeless message for every generation, an eternal reminder of the need to resist tyranny and fascism wherever it appears. Set in pre-World War II Austria, Captain Georg von Trapp chose to flee with his family from a prestigious naval command and his comfortable home, rather than serve Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany. It was adapted as a 1965 film musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, which won five Academy Awards. The Sound of Music was the final musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein; Hammerstein died of cancer nine months after the Broadway premiere.

Performances at March 9th at 7:30pm, March 10th at 2pm, March 10th at 7pm, March 16th at 8:00pm, March 17th at 2:00pm, and March 17th at 7:00pm. 

Save the dates and plan on joining us as we sing and dance in the ‘hills of Wynnewood.’ A wonderful performance awaits you.
