On December 5, 2010, a descendant of the von Trapp family, Kristina von Trapp Frame, attended The Sound Of Music at the John W. Engeman Theater at Northport. She was an honorary guest at the Solomon Island Fundraiser that was held at the theater on Sunday night. Kristina von Trapp Frame is the granddaughter of Maria von Trapp and the Captain and lives in Stowe, Vermont with her family. With her father, Johannes and brother, Sam, she owns and operates the von Trapp Family Lodge that Maria established when the family first settled in Vermont.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC is based on the true memoirs of Maria von Trapp's book, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers, and is the winner of five Tony Awards including Best Musical. This classic musical features one of the most family-friendly and popular scores in Broadway history. With songs such as My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, So Long, Farewell, and Climb Ev'ry Mountain, it is the perfect show to share with the entire family.
This Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic will run until January 16, 2011.
