NPHS to perform The Sound of Music February 2014
Drama and music students at Northland Pines High School will perform Rogers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music this February, the fifth annual musical in recent years at NPHS. The musical centers around Maria, a sweet young postulant whose love of freedom makes it obvious to her superiors that she is not suited for religious life. She is sent off to be the governess to Captain von Trapp’s seven children. Unlike previous governess’, Maria soon becomes friends with the children due to their mutual love of music. As even the strict Captain begins to admire Maria, the family must learn how to stay together amidst a rapidly changing political climate in Austria prior to World War II.
The production will be performed:
Friday, February 7th at 7:00 pm
Saturday, February 8th at 7:00 pm
Sunday, February 9th at 2:00 pm
All performances will be at the Northland Pines High School Auditorium.
Tickets will go on sale Monday, January 27th in the NPHS Office.

Auditions for NPHS students will be held November 12th and 13th. Students will comprise the entire cast and crew, including technical crew, lights, and sound.
A live pit orchestra, performed mostly by students, will also be used. The NPHS Musical will be directed by Kate Janssen, Northland Pines Choir Director, and Ann Perry, Northland Pines High School Science Teacher. The Pit Orchestra will be conducted by Jennifer Anderson, with acting coaching by Bernie Hupperts and costume design by Judy Clure.
