The Sound of Music is one of those tales that fit many tastes--fun for children, love story for couples, a little politics about the Nazis, challenges so many people attended. A full house is always fun to see. The music fit in naturally with the play.
Kerstin Anderson who played Maria and Ben Davis who played Captain Georg von Trapp, both sing well, play romantic well, and capture the mannerisms of Austrian locals. The Mother Abbess played by Ashley Brown showed a lot of strength. The children act their parts well and sing well too. The rest of the cast are well matched to these stars.
The staging was well managed; the props coming into and out of view rather seamlessly and has a very beautiful church and alp scener y, and the household seems like that of quite wealthy persons.
If you can get tickets, doubt you will be sorry, it's a winner. But then, Rogers and Hammerstein were known for their well loved plays.
