05 Mar Tickets Are Now On Sale For The Sound Of Music
With the latest announcement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, directing that public K–12 campuses remain closed until April 15, and the public health guidelines from the CDC regarding public gatherings, the spring musical has been postponed.
Westminster Academy proudly presents The Sound of Music, sponsored by Sage Dental and Dr. Steven Short Orthodontics. This play is one of the most nostalgic musicals, accredited to the memorable film version with Julie Andrews. While this musical is slightly different from the film most remember, the story is still the heartwarming, real-life story of the Von Trapp Family singers. The story follows Maria, a postulant at an Austrian abbey, who becomes the governess for the large Von Trapp family. The head of the house is the stern widower, Captain Von Trapp, who has closed his family off from music and open hearts ever since his wife died. Maria, set with a deep passion for life and music, introduces singing to the children and soon changes the hearts of the children and also the captain. However, trouble enters the world of the Von Trapp family as Nazi Germany begins to take over Austria on the eve of Anschluss in 1938, just before World War II begins. The family must decide how to adjust to this new regime or escape it.
