The hills are alive as Surflight Theatre continues its 2012 season with the heartwarming family classic, The Sound of Music.

Surflight Theatre, under the leadership of award-winning Broadway Producers Timothy Laczynski (The Pee-wee Herman Show, A Christmas Story), Executive Producer and Roy Miller (A Christmas Story, The Pee-wee Herman Show, West Side Story, The Drowsy Chaperone, Ragtime, and the upcoming new musical Animal House) Artistic Director, are proud to present this family friendly classic, last seen on the Surflight stage in 2000.
Based on Maria von Trapp’s inspiring novel, “The Story of the Trapp Family Singers,” The Sound of Music features an unforgettable score by Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II, with a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.
