The hills at Artpark will be alive with "The Sound of Music" starting next week. The Broadway musical is part of the summer-long celebration of Artpark's 40th anniversary.

Eight performances of "The Sound of Music" will be presented in the Mainstage Theater July 11-19. This classic and endearing musical is based on the book "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," and the 1965 film version starring Julie Andrews. It features an unforgettable Rodgers & Hammerstein score, including "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi" and "Climb Every Mountain."

Set in the 1930s, Maria is a sweet, young postulant whose free-spirited nature isn't suited for religious life, so she is sent off to be the governess to a widowed naval captain's seven troublesome children. Maria bonds with the children over their mutual love of music and soon she manages to capture the heart of the strict captain as well.

"The Sound of Music" was the final collaboration of the award-winning duo Rodgers & Hammerstein, who are widely acknowledged as the all-time "Kings of Broadway." This heartwarming story, with a thrilling and inspirational ending, is the perfect summer theater family treat.
