woman, Maria, who is sent to the von
Trapp family and leaves her monastic
Her journey leads her to Captain
von Trapp, a widowed naval officer who
believes in rearing his seven children
with strict military discipline.
She is entrusted with caring and
helping rear the seven children.
Ignoring the Captain’s beliefs on
strict, disciplined child rearing, she wins
the children’s love with her warm, pas
In time, a complicated romance
develops between the Captain and
After the two are married, political
issues arise with the Nazi’s occupancy
of Austria. The Captain is called on to
return to military service for the Nazis.
Despising the thought of being affil
iated with the Nazis, the Captain takes
his family and plots to flee the country.
Mixed into this romantic, suspense
f lied plot are the classic musical pieces.
The title song, “The Sound of
Music,” is sung at the beginning of the
musical, followed later by “Do-Re-Mi,”
a musical lesson sung by Maria while
teaching the children.
Other classic favorites include “My
Favorite Things,” sung by Maria to win
the approval of the von Trapp children,
and “Climb Every Mountain,” which
the Reverend Mother sings to Maria to
encourage her to follow her heart.
Rook said the original music from
the musical will be performed with
some additional songs that will be new
to those who have only seen the movie.
Rook said “The Sound of Music”
was chosen as the season opener as part
of an effort to have familiar titles that
include something for every age.
Although the story has a dark
undertone as a result of the Nazi regime,
Rook said this show will try to incorpo

Because of this, he said, the show

“We tried to keep it brisk and find
more comedy than people have come to

To keep the play moving quickly,
Rook said a revolving stage that

Jumping from scene to scene quick

38-member cast organized.
This is the first time the Dinner
Theatre has done this musical, and the
number of performers it requires is large

problem, and that rehearsals have been
He said the actors playing the seven
children have been wonderful and
described Maria, played by Melissa
Bemadt, as a “class act.”
Claus said the dinner theater did not
have a bad seat, which makes the actors
“up close and personal.”
He also said they use all the stage

he meant by this, adding that the only
