The “Sound of Music” is the fifth production by the T-Bird Community Arts organization since its inception in 2016. There are 52 total individuals involved ranging from 6-80+ years of age, thirty-five are in the cast. Most of the cast live in the GFW School District but there are others from the surrounding area including New Ulm.
The musical will be held in the GFW High School auditorium on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The decision by the board to choose the Sound of Music was made early in 2021. TCA actually purchased the licensing for the show at that time and due to the pandemic was unable to produce it. The board tries to choose shows that will attract a wide range of audience members and this one is a classic.
The show is about 2 1/2 hours with an intermission.
