Throckmorton Theatre Presents Rodgers and Hammersteins The Sound of Music May 13-29th!
** ADDED: Saturday matinee, 5/28, 12:00 noon **
The Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley has announced the full cast and creative team for its upcoming production of The Sound of Music, which will run from May 13-29.
Headlining the cast is Katrina Lauren McGraw* as Maria Rainer, the role originated by Mary Martin on Broadway and made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film.
McGraw is joined by stage veteran David Schiller as Captain Von Trapp.
The production is Directed by Adam Maggio, with Choreography by Erin Gentry, Music Direction by Justin Pyne and Vocal Direction by Sergey Khalikulov.
“Maria is a dream role I never knew I had,” says McGraw. “I grew up watching this movie—as most of us did—and I knew every song, every dance, everything. It wasn’t until the first table read that it really hit me that I was actually getting to play this role- I started singing ‘Sound of Music’ and I got choked up. I never thought someone would let me play this role, and I didn’t even realize how much I wanted to. I also love that we aren’t using “color blindness” with this which brings a whole new perspective and level to the show as a whole. I’m a very different Maria than people are used to seeing, but I hope I can win audiences’ hearts just the same.”
Founded in 1999 by Artistic Director Lucy Mercer, Throckmorton Theatre is a multi-disciplinary creative arts organization that is dedicated to uniting our community through the transformative power of the arts.
