FPAC to Present The Sound of Music
FPAC is pleased to present The Sound of Music on Saturday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Thomas D. Mercer Auditorium in Franklin. The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical theater classic has delighted audiences for generations. “Do-Re-Mi,” “My Favorite Things” and “Climb Every Mountain” are among the popular songs from this beloved Broadway score. FPAC’s production will feature a talented cast of professional artists, amateur performers and students of the arts, as well as live accompaniment by a professional orchestra.
The Sound of Music is based on the true-life story of the Austrian von Trapp family. Protagonist Maria’s independent ways prompt the Mother Abbess to encourage her to leave the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp’s seven unruly children. Maria’s charm and love of music and song soon win the hearts of the children – and their father. But when Austria is annexed by Nazi Germany, Maria must attempt a daring escape with her new family.
Along with The Sound of Music, FPAC’s 2012-13 season of shows includes the popular Family Concert Series, a free, family-friendly trio of events. This upcoming Family Concert Series will feature Mark Poniatowski Presents Meet the Beatles on January 13, Jamie Barrett Presents Family Favorites on February 3, and Little Red Riding Hood – An Opera for Children on March 17. FPAC’s presentations of the Family Concert Series and iconic Sound of Music follow FPAC’s highly anticipated holiday productions of The Nutcracker and Humbug!, an original contemporary musical adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
