Repertory Philippines ends its 2006 season with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, accompanied by the Manila Symphony Orchestra.
Directed by the REP’s artistic director Baby Barredo, the musical contains many songs that have become popular throughout the years including “The Sound of Music,” “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Climb Every Mountain.”
The all-star cast includes Monique Wilson and Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo (alternating as Maria); Audie Gemora and Michael Williams (alternating as Captain Von Trapp); Miguel Faustmann and Bonggoy Manahan (alternating as Max); Camille Lopez and Pinky Marquez (alternating as The Mother Abbess); Rina Reyes and Cherie Gil (alternating as the Baroness).
The Sound of Music is a heart-warming love story of a spirited young novice Maria, Captain Von Trapp and his seven children. While Austria is being over-run by the Nazis, the Captain and Maria device a scheme to escape during a song festival in which the family participates.
Venue: Onstage in Greenbelt 1, Makati City
