2023 Audition Season

The Sound of Music

Shows: December 1-3 & 8-10, 2023

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

This production will be directed by Jaime Hilton.

Rehearsals will begin October 6th and run Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 9am-3pm, and Sunday 2-5pm.


Dates: September 22nd & 23rd (Callbacks & Dance Call evening of September 24th – Please note this date change!)

Location: Cavod Performing Arts (665 West Main Street, New Holland PA 17557)
