Paso Robles High School Theatre Company Presents A Classic Musical, April 13-22
“‘The Sound of Music’ is a beautiful show,” said PRHS senior Madecyn Penn, who plays Maria. “It’s a classic family-friendly production about love, confidence in yourself, and the power of music.”
“The Sound of Music” is a well-known musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II — Julie Andrews starred in the movie adaptation that came out in 1965. The story is of a Austrian family that escapes the Nazis by posing as a musical group.
“‘The Sound of Music’ is a well-known show that our town should be exposed to,” said PRHS senior Madison Trujillo, who plays Louisa. “It shows us that even during rough times you can still find beauty. This story is about building relationships and love. Not only between Maria and Captain, but Maria and the children as well. Relationships affect those around you. The Von Trapp family finally found the perfect mom.”
The musical will be presented on Fridays, April 13 and 20, and Saturdays, April 14 and 21 at 7:30 p.m., and on Sundays, April 15 and 22 at 2 p.m., at the PRHS Performing Arts Center, 801 Niblick Road.
“I’m so honored to be apart of this amazing cast,” Penn said. “Every day I am blown away by their talent, dedication, and kind hearts. There is no one else I’d want to be on stage with, telling this beautiful story. A special thanks to our director, Marcy Goodnow, for always believing in us and for pushing us to be the best versions of ourselves; we will never be able to thank you enough for the impact that you’ve had on all of us. This show has been a life-changing experience and I hope that everyone gets a chance to see it.”
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $12 for students, seniors and children.
