The mountains are alive with ‘The Sound of Music’
During the last two weekends in June, the hills of Northeast Tennessee will echo with the familiar music of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, “The Sound of Music.”
Johnson County Community Theatre will present the musical favorite at historic Heritage Hall in Mountain City, Tenn.
The story takes place in 1938, when the Nazis have annexed Austria, placing the safety of Capt. Georg Von Trapp’s family at stake.
The musical’s producers promise suspicion, intrigue and lots of singing, featuring area vocal talents Dorinda Walters and Tommy Johnson performing the famous love story of Maria Rainer and Capt. Von Trapp.
The Von Trapp children are played by Deidre Burgess, Jacob McGlamery, Aisia Robbins, Matthew Harris, Lindsey Wills, Abigail Arnett and Ivy Lakatos.
The show also features Logan Vincent, Ryan Whitner, Lyn Walker, Derek Dickson, Ray Branch, Karissa Kirsch, Katie Walsh, Nancy Davis, Amber Bauguess, Judy Walsh, Hannah Arnett, Kristen Branch, Madison Green and Karley Kirsch.
This production of “The Sound of Music” is directed by Michael Eggers, and the musical director is Lisa Zeggert. It will be performed on June 22, 23 24 and June 29 to 30. Show time is 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
