Troubadours' Sound of Music Production is a Sellout
The Upper School Troubadours gave four outstanding sellout performances of the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, The Sound of Music, in March. This large-scale production featured dazzling sets, including a grand staircase and stunning backdrop of the Austrian hills, and beautiful costumes. The cast included 34 actors, representing all three divisions, and a production crew of 38.
Niema Foroughi '17 made his acting debut as Captain Von Trapp and calls the experience one of the highlights of his time at MICDS. "It really helped to have such an amazing cast and director to help me along the way. This experience taught me that hard work and effort always pay off."
Abbie Driver ’17 (Maria) was pleased that her final show at MICDS was a beloved classic. “The Von Trapp family was truly like a second, real life family. I love every single one of them, and they were so crucial to the success of the show - as was the entire cast,” she said. Portraying a well-known character was a challenge. “I wanted to portray Maria in a way that everyone would know and love, but that wasn’t identical to Julie Andrews' portrayal. I learned throughout the show process that the best way to do this was to show her transition from a young, innocent postulant to a graceful, intelligent wife and mother.”
