Show Info:

Springhouse Theatre Company is thrilled to invite you to audition for our upcoming production of The Sound of Music, directed by Kristian Rarig and featuring the artistic expertise of Music Director Lindsey Wortham and Choreographer Caitlin Del Casino, supported by our dedicated production staff.

The Sound of Music is a classic musical that follows the story of Maria, a spirited young woman who becomes a governess for the von Trapp family. As Maria brings music and joy into their lives, she forms a special bond with the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children. Set against the backdrop of pre-World War II Austria, the family navigates challenges together, finding strength and solace in their shared love for music. This timeless tale of love, family, and resilience is celebrated for its iconic songs and heartfelt storytelling.
