Cape High students to perform ‘Sound of Music’ March 15-18

March 7, 2018

Cape Henlopen High School will present “The Sound of Music” Thursday to Sunday, March 15 to 18. Curtain is 7 p.m. for Thursday, Friday and Saturday shows, with a matinee performance 2 p.m., Sunday. All performances will be held in the Cape Henlopen High School auditorium.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10. All seating is general admission and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to showtime.

“The Sound of Music” is a world-famous musical that was first directed by Robert Wise in 1965. The original performance takes place in Austria and is based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp Family Singers.

“A large number of our students have worked very hard to bring this classic story to our stage right here in Lewes,” said theatre instructor Sadie Andros. “Our textile students and our student musicians all are playing a huge role in this production.”

The textile students at Cape Henlopen High School are creating all the costumes, and a full pit of student musicians will be playing live during the show.

“It’s been a pleasure to watch our students work together to bring ‘The Sound of Music’ performance to fruition,” said Andros. “We hope our community enjoys watching it as much as we enjoy performing it.”
