Iconic is a word that can be applied to few things, but The Sound of Music is iconic. The music, the actors, the film itself is iconic. It is so iconic that NBC featured a live production two years ago. Now Greenville, South Carolina’s Peace Center is giving us the opportunity to experience it in person.
I remember the first time I saw The Sound of Music —with Julie Andrews— many years ago on television. I’ve seen it several times since and it remains a poignant commentary on life, politics, and relationships. The fact its based on an actual story only increases its appeal.
Between Wednesday April 20 and Sunday April 24 the Upstate’s premiere performance venue in downtown Greenville will offer 8 performances of the musical. With one performance each on Wednesday and Thursday and two on all three days of the weekend, there is a date that will work for you. Tickets start at a reasonable $30.
Click here to visit the Peace Center’s website and learn more. The website has an incredible design, even allowing you to get a feel for the view from available seats. So visit their website to enjoy one of my favorite things. (Get it, my favorite … never mind.)
