The Delray Beach PlayHouse Presents The Sound of Music


DELRAY BEACH, FL – As a special holiday presentation for the entire family, The Delray Beach Playhouse is presenting Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, one of the most popular and inspiring musicals of all time. The Show begins November 30 and runs through December 16, 2012. Based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers, The Sound of Music tells the story of a young postulant named Maria who became a governess in the home of Capt. George Von Trapp, an autocratic Austrian Naval Officer. It was an assignment that would eventually become her life’s work. A smash hit on Broadway, The Sound of Music went on to become the most successful motion picture of its time, a favorite with music lovers of all ages. The songs in the show have become American standards, including “Do-Re-Mi,” “Edelweiss,” “You Are Sixteen,” “So Long, Farewell” and “Climb Every Mountain.”

The Sound of Music stars Jeannette Thompson as “Maria” and Michael Cartwright as “Capt. Von Trapp.” Julie Cotton and Michael Traylor appear as the Captain’s worldly friends from Vienna, “Elsa” and “Max.” Maria’s Mother Abbess is portrayed by Marla Gideos.

The Sound of Music plays from November 30 to December 16. Individual Tickets are $30. Student Tickets are $15. For Reservations, call (561) 523-0723 or contact The Playhouse at
