The Sound of Music is one of the most beloved Rogers and Hammerstein musicals of all time. Maria Rainer, a free-spirited nun is sent to be a governess to seven children of Captain Von Trapp. Maria's love of music and of life, soon endears her to the children and even the strict of Captain begins to deeply admire her. From the open-hearted innocence of the title tune to the uplift of "Climb Every Mountain" to the folk simplicity of "Edelweiss" to the charm of "Do-Re-Mi" and "My Favourite Things," The Sound of Music continues to delight families with its memorable story and music!

Awake and Sing!
February 19-22, 26-28
Awake and Sing! was premiered by the legendary Group Theatre on Broadway in 1935. It is noteworthy as the first-ever Broadway show that focused entirely on an ethnic minority family. Widely considered to be Odets’ finest work, it is the story of the Berger’s, three generations of a lower-middle-class, immigrant Jewish family living in a Bronx, New York, apartment, in 1933. The family of grandparents, parents and children has come to America believing in the promise of making a better world for each of its members, but with the exceedingly unfortunate timing of having done so during the darkest years of the Great Depression.

Struggling with the opposing values of financial success as defined by the American Dream, and desperately trying to avoid defining their lives by the dollar, the Bergers’ confrontation with the extreme economic hardships is both starkly dramatic and unavoidably, richly comedic.

Giving a voice to the voiceless and the disenfranchised, Odets’ Awake and Sing! is a true to life depiction of a working-class family during the Depression, under conditions which are beyond its control. Odets explores the travails, hopes and personal courage as they strive for what they believe to be right and important to long term survival.
