St. Bede Academy will be alive with “The Sound of Music” this weekend when the well-known musical is performed by a cast of more than 30 students.
“Anybody who’s seen ‘The Sound of Music,’ the musical goes just like the original movie,” said Director Lisa Griggs.
The musical opened on Broadway in 1959 and was made into a film in 1965 starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
St. Bede chose the musical because of a December television performance, “The Sound of Music Live!” starring Carrie Underwood as Maria. St. Bede performed the musical in 1990s, Griggs said.
Students have been rehearsing since January. Period costumes will play a prominent role in St. Bede’s performance of the musical, set in 1930s Austria during the German invasion and before the outbreak of World War II. Maria Rainer, a former nun, is hired to tutor seven children of a wealthy, militaristic man. She teaches the children music and gains the love of their father.
Musical numbers will include “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things” and “Sixteen going on Seventeen.”
