THE SOUND OF MUSIC will be the Brookfield High School Curtain Players spring performance this coming March 20, 21, 22, & 23rd, 2014 at Brookfield High School. The production will feature student performers from every one of the Brookfield Schools including Center Elementary School, Huckleberry Hill Elementary School, Whisconier Middle School and of course Brookfield High School. The cast, crew and orchestra are comprised of close to 100 students. All performances are expected to sell-out, otherwise, tickets will be available at the door.
Actors have begun rehearsals, they are preparing for their musical numbers and behind the scenes, sets are being built in preparation for what is expected to be a spectacular performance.
Captain Georg Von Trapp, (played by Tim Peterson, BHS Senior) a wealthy widower, runs his home near Salzburg, Austria like the ship he once commanded. That changes when Maria (Jessica Schwartz, BHS Senior) arrives from the convent to be the new governess of his seven children; Liesl (played by Kelsey Reiff), Louisa: (played by Zoe DiPinto), Friedrich: (played by Caleb Wardenburg), Kurt: (played by Eli Jordan), Brigitta: (played by Katie Yeargin), Marta: (played by Mackenna Mowery), Gretl: (played by Alyssa Jobin).
Their outings through the hills inspire all to sing and to find joy in the smallest things through music. Suddenly their world is turned upside down when the 1938 Anschluss of Austria occurs, when Nazi Germany takes control of the country. What happens to Captain Von Trapp, his children and Maria? Come find out.
