The hills are alive with THE SOUND OF MUSIC Saturday January 20th at 7pm at Powell Hall.  Julie Andrews takes to the screen in this beloved 1965 film adaption of the original Broadway musical and gives a dazzling performance as the spirited Maria who warms our hearts and takes us away into a lovely world of song. THE SOUND OF MUSIC is set in Salzberg in Austria in the dying days of the 1930s. Rebellious trainee nun Maria (Andrews) has stepped on the toes of the Mother Abbess (Peggy Wood) one too many times and she finds herself shipped off to be the governess of one Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) and his seven children (Charmian Carr, Heather Menzies, Nicholas Hammond, Duane Chase, Angela Cartwright, Debbie Turner and Kym Karath). At first, she struggles to fit in to the fabric of the family which is strict and joyless but Maria’s zest of life, love and song soon melts the heart of the Von Trapps as the gathering storm of the Nazi threat swirls at the fringes of the story.The film is full of wonderful and memorable songs like “Do-Re-Mi”, “My Favorite Things” and “Climb Every Mountain.” Any film fan should see THE SOUND OF MUSIC on the big screen and fall in love with the majestic beauty this picture presents as you journey into those hills.
