The hills are alive! A brand new production of The Sound of Music, directed by Jack O’Brien, is coming to The Buell Theatre. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the Von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony, Grammy and Academy Award-winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss” and the title song.

“We plan to look more closely at this remarkable work – to tear off the varnish of the past and reveal one of the great, fresh glories of musical theater,” says three-time Tony Award-winning Director Jack O’Brien. Audiences in Denver will be among the first to see this all new production.

The Sound of Music features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse based on The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp.

This timeless classic enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in more than 50 years when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December 2013 (seen by more than 44 million people); 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.
