New England Regional Theater Company, formerly known as New England Youth Theater is presenting the ever so popular and beloved musical, the Sound of Music at Montgomery Theater at Morse High School on High Street in Bath, Maine on Memorial day weekend, sponsored by Sharon Drake Real Estate. The Sound of Music is a story based on the von Trapp Family set in Salzburg, Austria in the 1930’s.
Georg, Captain von Trapp, played by Tyler Beck of Brunswick, is widowed leaving him to find a governess to educate his children. He seeks help from the Mother Abbess, played by Kristin Korda of Saco, who recommends a young postulant nun called Maria, played by Lillian Ramser of Turner.
Maria is concerned to leave the Abbey to take up this position, but after meeting the seven children, she grows to like them and teaches them to sing and play-something that has been absent since the death of their mother.
The Captain is engaged to Elsa, the Baroness,
