Tony Award-Winning Sound of Music at Jean’s Playhouse!

Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical, opens at Jean’s Playhouse this Thursday, August 1st! Based on Maria von Trapp’s autobiography, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers, this family-oriented classic tells the tale of a young would-be nun who charms the hearts of her seven young charges as governess to a widowed naval Captain. Enjoy such musical standards as “My Favorite Things”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, “Do-Re-Mi”, and the title number “Sound of Music”, and watch as Miss Maria gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain von Trapp- and the rest of the audience!

The cast features the professional summer theatre company at Jean’s Playhouse as well as local talents including Fran Page, a current Plymouth State University faculty member, as Admiral von Schreiber, Dick Alberini, a long-time Papermill Theatre and Upstage Players supporter from Littleton, as Franz, and Ginny and Chris Peck, from Lincoln-Woodstock, a mother-and-son team who have performed onstage together four times in the past eight months!

The Sound of Music will run through August 18th. Tickets may be purchased at or by calling 603-745-2141. Jean’s Playhouse is located at 10 Papermill Drive in Lincoln, right behind the Price Chopper on Main Street.
