Review for the production: 

The Sound of Music is a renowned classic with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It was the last musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and perhaps their most adored contribution to the theatre. The original Broadway production, starring Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel, opened in 1959 and won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, out of nine nominations. Since then the show has become a world-wide phenomenon with numerous productions and revivals, many translations, as well as film and television adaptations.

In 1965 it was made into a film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, which won five Academy Awards and solidified its place as a modern classic. As recently as 2013 it was produced as a live televised production on NBC starring Carrie Underwood. With iconic and beloved songs such as “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Maria,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “So Long, Farewell,” “Edelweiss,” “Climb Every Mountain,” and of course the title song, this production will be overflowing with many well-known classics of the modern American musical theatre.

It will be presented by GPS and McCallie Upper School students with direction by Mark Krawczyk, GPS Drama teacher. Music is directed by Mike Lees, GPS director of Choirs.
