When the Sound of Music opened in 1959,
it won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. For millions of people around the world, this show is the quintessential combination of a powerful and moving story, beautiful and memorable music, and fascinating characters brought to life. The musical
tells the story of Maria and the large family she becomes governess to while she decides whether to become a nun.
In this Musical Theater class, we will study the Sound of Music to grow deeper in our understanding of the art of the stage. We will explore storytelling elements, choreography choices, vocal interpretations, and characterization. Classes will include warm-ups, solo and group singing, scene work, dancing, theater games, researching the show, and a final showcase performance.
