"Do-Re-Mi," "Edelweiss" and "My Favorite Things," are a few of the popular songs that can be heard in the Baldwinsville Theatre Guild's upcoming youth musical production of "The Sound of Music."
"The Sound of Music," directed by Bill Coughlin, is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. The story is based on the memoir of Maria Von Trapp, "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers." The Theatre Guild's production is comprised of children from 7 to 18 years old from all over Onondaga County. The lead part of Maria Rainer is played by Sarah Boutwell of Baldwinsville.
"The public comes out to see our shows because we put on an artistic, entertaining and professional looking production every time," said producer Steve Borek. "The shows are reasonably priced and we have a core group of talented individuals that are passionate about the work. They spend countless hours volunteering to be part of this unique experience. We are the best kept secret in the area!"
Started in 1942 by Rosemary Sinnett Nesbitt, The Baldwinsville Theatre Guild has been doing youth productions for 30 years and currently is the oldest continually performing community theatre group in all of New York State and has one of the largest costume selections in the state.
