The Sound of Music
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant 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 theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
This all time favorite family musical includes such hit
songs as Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Me, My Favorite Things, Edelweiss, and the title song The Sound of Music.
The musical will feature NDNU students, faculty, professionals, as well as local community members. Diana Schuster returns to NDNU as director, with musical direction by Hatem Nadim, assistant music director Jonathan Mann, and choreography by Dottie Lester-White.
