Students from Highlands High School’s Theatre Department will perform The Sound of Music. Based on a true story, The Sound of Music is the masterful retelling of the Family von Trapp singers with memorable music from Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Highlands’ production stars Abi Moore as Maria and Josty Sieverding as Captain von Trapp. The von Trapp family singers include Madeline Anderson as Liesl, Payton Epperson as Friedrich, Rachel Zimmerman as Louisa, Sam Burnham as Kurt, Michelle Chalk as Brigitta, McKenna Pinkston as Marta and Caroline Slaby as Gretl.
FTM collaborated with the YouTube channel, Camera Behind the Curtain to document the practice and preparation that goes into a Highlands theatrical production. The videos catch actors blocking their scenes, practicing lines, dress rehearsals and more. The videos are shot by the lead, Abi Moore, and are produced by avid vlogger, Laura Petracco. Check out the hard work that goes in to bringing the Von Trapp family to the stage:
