The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts will stage Rogers and Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music” April 14-16 at 7:30 p.m. and April 17 at 2:30 p.m.
“The Sound of Music” is presented by Franklin’s own Overlook Theatre Company, under the direction of the center’s Artistic Director Scotty Corbin. The production is sponsored by Christian Training Center International (also known as “The Inn”), located in Franklin.
This beloved, classic musical, set in Austria during World War II , tells the story of a young woman, Maria, who is struggling to find her way as a nun. On the advice of the Mother Abbess, Maria leaves the convent to determine what she wants from life and takes a position as governess to the seven children of a rigid widower, Captain Von Trapp. Love blossoms between Maria and the Captain as the young nun fills the lives of the Von Trapp family with music and joy.
