Hills are Alive at San Diego Junior Theatre
students from throughout San Diego County are performing in San Diego Junior
Theatre’s production of The Sound of
Music. Based on the
autobiography “The Trapp Family Singers,” the beloved musical is set during
the 1930s in Austria where an aspiring nun, Maria, is assigned by the head of
her abbey to be a governess. Maria’s vivaciousness and generous heart attract
the love of the seven children and their widowed father, decorated Navy Captain
Georg Von Trapp.
Sound of Music
was the final collaboration between renowned composer Richard Rodgers and
lyricist Oscar Hammerstein. With a book by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse, The
Sound of Music premiered on Broadway in 1959. Presented by San Diego Junior
Theatre through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals and directed by
Rayme Sciaroni, The Sound of Music is
recommended for adults and children 6 years of age or older.
Sound of Music
runs Friday, October 26 through Sunday, November 18 at the Casa del Prado
Theatre. Tickets range from $10 to $15 and are available online at
juniortheatre.com or by calling (619) 239-8355. Like all San Diego Junior
Theatre shows, The Sound of Music
showcases the dedication and skills of its students, both onstage and behind the
curtain. With guidance from adult professionals, student crew members run most
of the behind the scenes elements of the show.
Diego Junior Theatre is committed to the region’s youth by encouraging the
development of their creativity, self-esteem, and enjoyment of theatre arts.
Positively affecting students of all abilities ages 3 through 18, the non-profit
organization thrives through show ticket sales, class and camp enrollments, and
the generosity of its alumni and community members. Contributions to San Diego
Junior Theatre are tax-deductible. “The Sound of Music” is sponsored
in part by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, the City of
San Diego Park and Recreation Department, and the County of San Diego.
