The Sound of Music

The hills are alive with the sound of music! Wait, do we mean Rotary Hill? I think that's the only hill in Naperville.

Actually, we mean the perennial favorite Broadway Musical that premiered November 15, 1959. It's on its way back to Naperville and will arrive in July of 2022. We hope to be back in the Naperville High School Auditorium, our pre-COVID home since 1991. The pandemic is making long-term commitments difficult, so we're planning an outdoor performance option as a backup. Either way, the show will go on.

Early Bird Tickets are already on sale. If you long for live theatre, grab your ticket now, then as we approach the opening, choose which performance you plan to attend. You can't beat the flexibility and the lowest price, but Early Bird ticket holders get added benefits (keep reading for more on that) so you'd be smart to get a ticket now. And remember, they make for great gifts too.

Summer Place will tell you the tale of young novice Maria, called upon by her Reverend Mother to care for the children of the widowed Captain George von Trapp. She falls in love with the children while the Captain falls in love with her. But it's not only a love story; our play is set in Austria in the early days of World War II during the German occupation, and Nazis excert an ever increasing hold on the life of the von Trapp family, to the point of their plan to escape. It makes for a warm and compelling tale, and we can't wait to bring it to our stage.

It takes a community to put on such a big theatre production. We are just now beginning to fill key positions in our production team, and so if you are excited as we are to help produce this show, contact us now with your interest and your previous experience in design or direction of live performances.

Longing to get back on stage? Audition information will be announced at the beginning of 2022, but keep your calendars open for about a 10 week rehearsal schedule leading up to a 3-weekend run starting July 15.
