BONIFAY — Holmes County High School Drama Department will present “The Sound of Music” on Tuesday Dec. 3, Saturday Dec. 7, Sunday Dec. 8, and Monday Dec. 9 at the HCHS Auditorium.  There will be a 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., show on Saturday and a 2:30 p.m., show on Sunday.

 “The Sound of Music” is set in pre-WWII Austria, is based on the romantic true story of Maria von Trapp, an aspiring nun who leaves the abbey to become a governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry.

Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical.

The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
