Frederick, MD- Over the years, The Sound of Music has proven itself to be one of the most beloved musicals time and time again, both in the United States and around the globe. Coming this spring, the classic tale will return to Frederick at The Way Off Broadway Dinner Theatre.
The final collaboration between Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most classic musical. In this heartwarming story, when a postulate proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern captain, leading to one of the most inspirational and endearing musical theatre endings of all time.
