Enjoy "The Sound of Music" this weekend at the Superior High School Performing Arts Center. Showtimes are 7 p.m. today, 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students.
The classic tale, based on a true story, will be brought to life by a cast of about 40 thespians in a range of ages, from high school seniors to a second-grader.
"We love being able to incorporate younger ones in the show," said co-director Amber Gilbert. "It allows them to experience theater on a much larger scale than many of them are used to. It also helps to drum up interest in our theater programs."
Audience members can tap their toes to songs like "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria," "Edelweiss" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," performed by a live orchestra.
The school chose "The Sound of Music" this year because of its popularity and message.
"In our current climate, we think it's especially important to tell stories about people standing up against what is wrong," Gilbert said. "This is an important theme found within the play, and we hope that the audience can take something away after they see the show."
Due to construction, patrons should park in the far east parking lots near the softball fields behind the high school. They will need to enter the school at doors 11 and 14.
Tickets are still available online at our.show/thesoundofmusicsuperior and will be available at the door, cash or check only, one hour before the show starts. During school hours, tickets are available in the treasurer's office.
