MEDIA RELEASE: The Sound of Music is extended for two weeks

June 23, 2015… The critics are describing the Stratford Festival’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music as “wondrous,” “magnificent,” and a “joyous celebration.”  With four stars from both the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail, The Sound of Music has become the must-see musical of the season. Now the run is being extended for two more weeks, so you have until November 1 to catch this beautiful production.

Directed and choreographed by Donna Feore, the force behind a string of Stratford mega-hits, including Crazy for You and Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music features Stephanie Rothenberg as Maria and Ben Carlson as Captain von Trapp, surrounded by a cast of superb performers, all of whom bring this beloved musical to rich theatrical life.
