The hills are alive with the sound of music…. Hey Dallas Broadway fans, the classic musical performance of The Sound of Music is coming to Dallas, TX
Sound of Music Comes to Dallas Broadway
Directed by three-time Tony Award® winner Jack O’ Brien, the spirited and romantic story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences taking the show back to its essence creating a deeper, richer and more powerful journey for a fresh interpretation of this timeless musical.
Dallas Summer Musicals and Performing Arts Fort Worth are bringing this stage show to our area: November 3-22, 2015 at the Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas and the musical will be back August 17-21, 2016 performing at the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.
Like a few of the other shows I’ve attended with Dallas Summer Musicals, while I hadn’t seen them before – I totally recognize a few of these classic songs from The Sound of Music:
- My Favorite Things
- Sixteen Going on Seventeen
- So Long, Farewell
- Something Good
We are making it a mom-daughter date night. In the spring, I had the privilege of taking our oldest, Z (she is 12) to see Newsies and Cinderella. To my surprise, she fell in love with theater – in fact so much she joined the technical theater team at school.
I didn’t grow up going to the theater but am sure glad to be able to experience these shows with my kids. We aren’t fancy folk, but I do love that these shows give us an opportunity to dress up a little and let my daughter her put her manners to use in an adult setting.
Don’t miss out – tickets will go fast to this hit show.

I am going to let you in on something. I have never seen The Sound of Music movie. Nope, nada. So going to the musical, I had no idea what to expect. Of course, I had heard several of the iconic songs over the years, but somehow I never watched the movie.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.
The show was more than I could ever expect. From the amazing set, to the fabulous voices and darling costumes – I was never once bored or unengaged with what was happening on stage. Neither was my 12-year-old. Z told me on at least 3 occasions, I have to see what happens at the end!
On that note, it was a wonderful bonding time with my girl. 12-years-old is such a hard age for all parties involved. It was great to not have to worry about homework or the evening stresses that a school night brings and just enjoy her and watch her be inspired by the show.
In the last year, she has seen Cinderella and The Newsies. Both inspired her to join technical theatre at school to learn the behind the scenes. She of course had to bring the playbill to school with her the next day to show her teacher.
We stayed, we watched, we sang in our heads and we loved every minute of it. The only problem, these songs a week later are still singing in my head.
Dallas, make sure to check out The Sound of Music – it’s a show you won’t want to miss. It’s here in Dallas until November 22, 2015.
