Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It's the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family -- and their father -- the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "The Lonely Goatherd" and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway's Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier. Learn More
Written in Chicago in 1905, The Marvelous Land of Oz was a huge success as a novel and was later adapted as a stage production that premiered at Chicago’s Garrick Theatre. It was later produced as a short silent film in L. Frank Baum’s Fairylogue and Radio Plays; a “multi-media” traveling production produced by Chicago’s Selig-Polyscope film studio utilizing live actors, glass slides, hand-colored silent film and even Baum, himself, as the narrator.
New American Folk Theatre and Treehouse are pleased to present this original adaptation with book and music by Anthony Whitaker. The Marvelous Land of Oz is an experience for the whole family to enjoy.
