HCT to perform ‘Sound of Music’ March 23
Houston is alive with The Sound of Music.
The Houston Community Theater will perform the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music at the Houston High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. March 23.
“It has a smaller cast and the talent is vast,” said HCT Director Janet Coker. “There is good chemistry between the students who make up a large part the cast. They really could be brothers and sisters.”
The Sound of Music is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp and the Trapp Family Singers’ life in the Austrian Alps and their escape from Nazis Germany just prior to World War II.
The 1959 Broadway musical features such favorites as Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi and the title song The Sound of Music.
“Everyone loves The Sound of Music and most people know the songs,” said Coker. “And seeing people you know in our community on stage singing these songs will amaze you.”
The cast has Molly May as Maria, Daniel Heeringa as Capt. Von Trapp and Carol Gibson as Elsa, Captain Von Trapps wealthy and sophisticated fiancée. Randy Rinehart is Max Detweiler, Von Trapps friend and musical producer. The Von Trapp children are: Carley Hood as Liesel, Lane Callahan at Friedrich, John Garrett Moore as Kurt, MaKenzie Pettit as Brigitta and Abbie Heeringa as Gretl. Other characters include Mother Superior played by Melissa Moore and Rolf played by Will Davis.
“Dr. Larry Newell is our musical director for the fourth year and will be on piano with Laura Claire Moore on violin,” said Coker. “Our stage manager is Justin Merriman, our sound and technology director is Patricia Ellison and our art director is Rhonda Burt.”
Coker also said Jack Dendy will make his eighth appearance in a HCT production as Franz the Butler.
“It really is quite a crew and it should be a sell-out,” said Coker. “And we only do it once, so if you miss it, it’s gone.”
Tickets are $7.50 for general admission and can be purchased at the Houston High School office of by contacting any HCT member.
