The hills are alive with "The Sound of Music"

The Hall is alive with the Sound of Music, as the Middlebury Community Players proudly presents this classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical at Town Hall Theater through May 2.

The beloved musical is being brought to life under the direction of Justin Bouvier, Serena Eddy-Moulton and Tina Coleman, with the support of Algy Layden, Mary Longey and Amanda Yauch.

Larry Hamberlin will conduct the orchestra.

The cast has been hard at work since January singing, dancing and perspiring.

The famous story about Vermont's famous immigrant family focuses on perplexed postulant Maria (played by Jessica Allen), who is trying to figure out God's plan for her life, while interrupted by the request of retired Navy Officer Captain von Trapp (Daniel Hollander) to help him raise his children. Maria sets out to be governess to the Captain's seven children (Kate Whalen, Max Moulton, Danielle Norris, Harrison Miller, Bailey Sherwin, Eden Ginsberg and Eryn Diehl) only to find herself falling in love with the children and their father, too.

It's all told with one of the American musical's most vibrant scores, including the title song, "Do Re Mi," "My Favorite Things," and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."

Gretchen Cole, Jill Robinson, Katy Abbott, Scott Remick and many more round out the cast, ready to deliver a show to remember. The Sound of Music is sure to be a prized jewel in the Middlebury Community Players' treasure chest.

The Sound of Music will play from April 22 - May 2, Thursday - Saturday at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 p.m., at Town Hall Theater. The performance on May 2 will include American Sign Language interpretation. Tickets, $20/$15 children, are available through the THT Box Office at www.townhalltheater.org, 802 388-1436, or in person Monday-Saturday, noon -5 pm.
