Beaufort Theatre Company will present the classic musical The Sound of Music from September 23 to October 1. The show will be directed by Christi Barr and will feature a cast of thirty local actors at the USCB Center for the Arts, located at 801 Carteret St in historic downtown Beaufort.

The winner of six Tony Awards, The Sound of Music tells the story of Maria, a young woman who becomes a governess to the seven children of a widowed naval officer in late 1930s Austria. Maria brings music and love into the lives of the children, and they eventually come to love her. However, the family’s happiness is threatened when the Nazis invade Austria.

The Sound of Music is a beloved musical that has been enjoyed by audiences of all ages for generations. Featuring classic Rodgers and Hammerstein songs such as “Do-Re-Mi,” “My Favorite Things,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” The Sound of Music is based on a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse and suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and military, and $20 for students and may be purchased online or by calling the CFA Box Office at 843-521-4145.
