| October 9, 2023 | 0 Comments

Once again, “The Sound of Music” will enchant Junior Theatre audiences with its timeless story and captivating melodies. “The Sound of Music” will run Fridays at 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sundays at 2 p.m. from October 27 to November 12, 2023. JT’s popular Pajama Night is Friday, November 3.

Set in Austria on the eve of World War II, we follow the journey of Maria, a spirted young woman with a passion for music, who is sent as a governess to the seven von Trapp children. Through her challenges with this broken family, Maria discovers the transformative power of love and music in the face of adversity.

Directed by new Producing Artistic Director (and JT alum), Joey Price, families are guaranteed to enjoy this epic story that brings to life the timeless tale of love, courage and the power of music. “The Sound of Music” is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, with songs familiar to everyone such as, “Climb Every Mountain,” “A Few of My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and more.

Joining Price on the creative team is first-time Junior Theatre Music Director, Ben Read, and frequent JT Choreographer, Ricardo Valenzuela, who most recently choreographed last season’s sold out smash, “Roald Dahl’s Matilda!”
