Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will close their 10th Anniversary Season with, The Sound of Music (Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Book by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse) Friday, December 6, 2013 – December 15, 2013 at The Byng Community Theater in Abrams.
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
Opening night is Friday, December 6 at 7:00pm. Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will be having an Opening Night Gala. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served after the show (with the cast and crew of The Sound of Music).
