Theatre Bristol Announces March Auditions for 'The Sound of Music'

February 21, 2022

One of the most popular musicals of all time, Theatre Bristol with sponsor ENT & Allergy Consultants brings “The Sound of Music” to the Paramount Center for the Arts under the direction of Glenn Patterson.

Auditions for the June production are March 19, 20, 21 and 22, with days and times for men, women and children. Rehearsals begin April 18. Important audition information including times, songs, rehearsal and performance dates, and additional details are at www.TheatreBristol.org/audition.

“The Sound of Music,” the final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein, features a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do Re Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the title number. The Sound of Music earned five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision (Concord Theatricals).

Directing “The Sound of Music” is Theatre Bristol veteran Glenn Patterson. Music director Steve Davis is a music and voice teacher, retired church music minister and producer.

Auditions include provided readings, singing and movement/dancing, and while no preparation is required, prepared music is welcome. Anyone interested in being a part of the production crew may contact Theatre Bristol at info@theatrebristol.org, or be present at any of the audition times.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is required.
