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

Immediately following the Saturday, May 11, 10am performance, take a journey with us through Wayside School! Learn how to create characters and environments using your body as you climb all the way up to the 30th floor, dodging science experiments, cows and even Miss Zarves as you travel to your favorite classroom. We only hope everyone doesn’t get turned into apples on the way! This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and advance reservations are recommended.
