San Diego Musical Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "The Sound of Music" May 10-26, 2013 at The Birch North Park Theatre. Music by Richard Rodgers; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; and Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.

San Diego Musical Theatre announces their second production of their 2013 season Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "The Sound of Music," (press opening on Saturday, May 11) at the Birch North Park Theatre.

A 25 piece live orchestra, led by Don LeMaster, will be playing the beautiful music of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

About the Musical: The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain.

Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
