Rockwall Summer Musicals is back with 2nd show of 10th anniversary season

ROCKWALL, TX (July 30, 2022) Back in 2011, Rockwall Summer Musicals launched into the Rockwall County arts scene with their productions of The Sound of Music and Oklahoma! In honor of this tenth anniversary, they will once again present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical The Sound of Music directed by Barbara Doudt. Barbara is a founding member of Rockwall Summer Musicals, and this will be the 12th show she has directed. Join us August 5 – 14, 2022 at the Rockwall Performing Arts Center (1201 T L Townsend Drive, Rockwall, TX 75087). 

The Sound of Music is based on the life of Maria von Trapp. Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun. She falls in love with the children, and eventually their widowed father, Captain von Trapp. He is ordered to accept a commission in the German navy, but he opposes the Nazis. He and Maria decide on a plan to flee Austria with the children. You may find yourself humming along to many of the musical’s classic songs, including “My Favorite Things”, “Edelweiss”, “Do-Re-Mi”, and of course, “The Sound of Music”.

The talented cast of this show includes: Molly Pope as Maria, Eric Segovis as Captain von Trapp, Barbara Doudt as Mother Abbess, Makenna Ostrom as Liesl, Owen Garcia as Fredrich, Emily Duke as Louisa, Ethan Moore as Kurt, AnnaGrace Smith as Brigitta, Bella Brown as Marta, Georgia and Mara Pope as Gretl, Ben Ashcraft as Rolf, Janna Tindall as Elsa, Will Essig as Max, Mike Achacoso as Franz, Haylee Norris as Frau Schmidt, Blythe Senkel as Sister Berthe, Hope Englestad as Sister Margaretta, Samantha Barron as Sister Sophia, Maddy Grimes as Ursula, Matt Johnson as Herr Zeller, Ken Bender as Baron Elberfeld, Zane Shipman as Admiral von Schrieber and an incredible ensemble of nuns and dancers.
