Brownstown alive with 'Sound of Music'

Tribune staff reports

“The Sound of Music” will be presented March 14 to 16 at Brownstown Central High School, 500 N. Elm St.

The musical will be performed at 7 p.m. each day in the auditorium.

This is the tale of a family living securely in an Austrian castle, who were forced to leave their homeland during the rise of the Nazi regime in the 1930s.

The story begins with the portrayal of a novice — a nun in training — who is sent to work as a governess for the strict Capt. Von Trapp and his seven children. The plot shows how the young woman wins the heart of the children and their father, teaches them to sing and then helps them escape the threat of their lives when the Nazis invade Austria.
