The Sandwich Opera House will come alive with “The Sound of Music” this month.
A spirited young postulant named Maria is sent to serve as a governess for Captain Von Trapp, a widower with seven children. Her unorthodox methods quickly win over the children but clash with the regimental conduct the Captain insists upon. Playing the role of Maria will be Suzannah Walter of Sandwich. Paul Ropp of Oswego will play Captain George Von Trapp. LuAnne Harkins will play Mother Abbess.
The Von Trapp children are played by Deanna Frances as Liesl, Ian Panke as Friedrich, Blythe Schwaller as Louisa, Isaiah Panke as Kurt, Caitlyn Roe as Brigitta, Macie Jansen as Marta and Kendel Graham as Gretl.
Also featured are Elizabeth Stevenson of Millington, as the Baroness Elsa Schraeder, Dan Rosier of Yorkville, as the opportunistic music promoter Max Detweiler, Sharon Pagoria as Frau Schmidt, Maria Ospina as Sister Berthe, Christine Roe as Sister Sophia, Amy Daly as Sister Margarette, Doug Michaels as Admiral von Shreiber, John Graham as Herr Zeller and Nick Kinner as Rolf Gruber.
