The hills are alive...

May 15, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
When I was younger, I never saw what the big deal was about the 1965 movie “The Sound of Music.” Sure it won a few Academy awards and was a decent little love story, but my goodness, the movie’s three hours long! My aunt Sue used to gush about how much she just loved that movie and would threaten to turn it on when it was broadcast at Thanksgiving.

It wasn’t until my brother was in a production of “The Sound of Music” at Somerset High School. He portrayed Max, the scrupilous talent scout. I just watched the show thinking, that’s my quiet, unassuming brother onstage playing this goofy character. And hey, the show isn’t all that bad. I’ve now since seen the movie a couple of times and been to the stage versions at Lake Benton and Tracy in the last couple of years.

Now it’s Marshall Area Stage Company’s turn to bring back the classic. “The Sound of Music” is the reason MASC formed a decade ago. I won’t go into the details here, but those of you who were in the 1999 production probably know what I’m talking about. Anyway, MASC is having auditions for “The Sound of Music” at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the SMSU Mainstage Theater. I’m looking forward to my fourth time of seeing the show onstage.
