Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at THE SOUND OF MUSIC, Coming to Seattle This September

A brand new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, produced by NETworks Presentations, is making its Seattle premiere from September 6 - 11 at The Paramount Theatre as part of a North American tour. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in action below!

THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. The beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony, Grammy and Academy Awar-winning Best Score, including "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss" and the title song.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as a live television production when "The Sound of Music Live!" aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.

The creative team for this new production includes direction by Matt Lenz, based on the national tour's original direction by three-time Tony Awar winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Coast of Utopia). Original choreography by Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen, Fun Home, The Bridges of Madison County, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) has been recreated by Jonathan Warren, with music supervision by Andy Einhorn (Hello, Dolly!, Bullets Over Broadway, Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, The Light in the Piazza).

The design and production team is comprised of Tony Awar nominee Douglas W. Schmidt, set design (The Front Page, 42nd Street, Into the Woods); Tony Awar winner Jane Greenwood, costume design (The Little Foxes, 2014 Special Tony Awar for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre), six-time Tony Awar winner Natasha Katz, lighting design (Long Day's Journey Into Night, An American in Paris, Once, Aida, The Coast of Utopia, The Glass Menagerie) and Shannon Slaton, sound design (Present Laughter, The Humans). Casting is by Stewart/Whitley.

Tickets (starting at $30) are available on-line at STGPresents.org, Ticketmaster.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or in person at The Paramount Theatre Box Office (Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm). For more information, visit www.SoundOfMusicOnTour.com.
