The Sound of Music
by Zach Theatre

Feb. 10 - Feb. 22

The hills are alive in this intimate, heartfelt re-imaginig of the beloved musical classic! Maria's sunny nature and passion for music brings joy and laughter back to the Von Trapp family, and melts the Captain's cold heart. Your spirits will soar to the Tony, Grammy, and Oscar-winning score, including "My Favorite Things", "Do-Re-Mi", "Climb Every Mountain", and of course, the title song. Love triumphs, and light wins over the darkest of times.

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Suggested by "The Trapp Family Singers" by Maria Augusta Trapp
