High marks go to the fine performances of the singing nuns and the extraordinary Mother Abbess with her rendition of “Climb Every Mountain”. There was an over-flowing of talent in “The Sound Of Music,” which proves that there is no shortage of this talent in and around the city of Rome.
Each Von Trapp child stood out in performance, but the actors surrounding them, i.e. Captain Von Trapp, Max, Elsa, Frau Schmidt, Franz, the butler, the party-goers, and even the so-called Hitlerites held their own and certainly were no shrinking violets.
I savored the best for last. There is no doubt that Maria gave a lasting performance with ease and grace and a trained voice to match the best that Broadway has to offer.
This writer would be remiss in not pointing out the three-dimensional artwork that went into the Abbey scene. It was breath-taking artistry. Credit goes to the crew for the smooth scene changes along with the planned lighting.
Thank you Director Price for a memorable “Sound Of Music.”
