The hills around Malin Road along the border of Radnor and Newtown Square will be alive with The Sound of Music Friday night and Saturday afternoon as Delaware County Christian School presents the musical in the school's DeMoss performing arts and worship center.
Robert DiBartolomeo of Havertown plays Rolf, the messenger turned reluctant Nazi in 1938 Austria. He and Hannah Schaafsma of Newtown Square are featured in the classic "You are 16 going on 17" in the show's first act.
Unlike some of the bigger public high school musicals, this production is a real community effort, with students from all three divisions (elementary, middle and high schools) of the school performing.
The sets were built during the school's unique two week winter session that allows students to focus on subjects of interest outside the normal academic classes.
- The Sound of Music runs Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m.
- Tickets are reserved seating for each performance.
- Ticket prices range from $8 to $12 for adults and $5 to $10 for students
A promo on the school's website says of this production:
Buy your tickets now for the March, 2013 performances of The Sound of Music proudly presented by the Delaware County Christian School High School Drama Department.
This well-known and beloved musical recounts the true story of the Von Trapp family and their young governess, Maria, who brings music, healing and love to a family fractured by the loss of their mother. Their story unfolds just as their homeland of Austria is dealing with occupation and annexation into Nazi Germany in 1938.
Bring your entire family and friends along as a cast of over sixty talented DC students brings the Von Trapp’s story to life on the DeMoss Center stage on March 1, 2, 8 and 9.
