The Hills are Alive with "The Sound of Music" at Westminster College

The Westminster College Celebrity Series presents "The Sound of Music" Tuesday, April 13, at 8 p.m. in Orr Auditorium.

Set in Salzburg, Austria in the late 1930s, "The Sound of Music" is the inspiring true story of Maria Rainer, who proves to be too high-spirited for the religious life, so she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of the widowed naval Captain von Trapp.  This Rodgers and Hammerstein musical follows Maria and the von Trapp family through the Nazis invasion and the family's narrow escape to Switzerland.

"This is a full-scale Broadway production that's wonderful for the whole family," said Gene DeCaprio, director of the Westminster College Celebrity Series.

"The Sound of Music" opened on Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Nov. 16, 1959.  This production won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical, and ran for 1,443 performances.  The 1965 film version earned five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and stands as the most successful movie musical of all time.

A limited number of tickets are available.  For ticket information, contact Connie McGinnis, assistant director of the Celebrity Series, at (724) 946-7354 or e-mail
