Actors Resources

This year, as part of our Catholic Schools Week Celebration, ASB Theatre Ensemble is proud to present 

January 30th, 31st, February 1st, and February 2nd at Nathan Hale High School.

The Sound of Music tells the tale of young would-be nun, postulant Maria Rainer, whose free spirit and wild ways make it difficult for her to abide by the rules and regulations of Nonnberg Abbey. Sent by her Mother Abbess to serve as governess to seven motherless children while she discerns her vocation, Maria transforms the dour, strictly regulated Von Trapp family home into a house filled with joy, laughter, and music. Maria wins the hearts of all seven Von Trapp children—in addition to winning the heart of their widowed father, Captain Georg Von Trapp. Shortly after Maria and the Captain marry, the newly formed family learns that their beloved Austria has been annexed by Nazi Germany, and the retired Captain is commanded to report immediately for naval service to the German flag. When Nazi officials arrive to take Captain Von Trapp away, a family singing engagement (cleverly navigated by Von Trapp’s wily friend Max) buys the family time to make their narrow, harrowing escape to freedom and safety in neighboring Switzerland.
