Set in 1938, The Sound of Music is based on Maria von Trapp’s autobiography The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. The original production starred Mary Martin and Theodore Bikel. It won five Tony Awards and was one of the longest running productions of the fifties. The 1965 film version co-starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer and won five Academy Awards. Several awarded Broadway revivals have followed along with national tours, international productions, regional, educational and community productions.

The Sound of Music remains the world’s most beloved musical. The celebrated score includes the title song plus Climb Ev’ry Mountain, My Favorite Things, and Edelweiss.
