On May 5, the national touring production of The Sound of Music comes to the stage of Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Van Wert.

One of the most successful movies and Broadway plays of all time, this 50-plus-year-old beloved tale of Maria and the Von Trapp family received renewed interest when it aired live on NBC five years ago and was seen by more than 44 million viewers.

Sporting a song list that reads like the greatest hits of Broadway, including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” The Sound of Music’s Tony-, Grammy-, and Academy Award-winning music will live on in your head long after the curtain has closed.

The Los Angeles Times calls this production “sparkling, fresh, and lively” and says it’s “one of the finest productions” they have seen in a long, long time, featuring “a magnificent cast that captures our hearts.”

Even the most discerning fans will appreciate the way this timeless story is told by a cast that is stacked with talented actors and outstanding musical performances.

In the end, the enduring message of hope and the ability of the human spirit to overcome is as relevant today as it was fifty years ago and is sure to leave everyone with a song in their heart and a smile on their face.
