‘The Sound of Music’ coming to Henry
HENRY — River Valley Players will present “The Sound of Music” April 19, 20, 21, 27, 29 and 29 at St. Mary’s Community Center in Henry.
One of the most beloved and inspirational stories of all time, this tale of love and courage is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s final triumphant collaboration. Based on the true story of the von Trapp family, the “Sound of Music” has become a beacon of hope and joy for generations.
The story begins when a postulant Maria (played by Lindsey Pugh), proves too high-spirited for the religious life. During a discussion among the nuns in “How Do You Solve a Problem like Maria?”, Maria is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her love of music and 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. 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 theater. With its unforgettable score that includes musical favorites like “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” and “The Lonely Goatherd”.
