Hillcrest Village Community Players presents: Sound of Music
There will be eight performances between April 27 and May 6. (Tickets at https://www.hillcrestvillageplayers.ca/products/the-sound-of-music)
We chose the Sound of Music for its enduring classic songs and heartwarming storyline, popularized by Julie Andrews and a Hillcrest Village neighbourhood born; Christopher Plummer! This musical embodies our values as an organization; a sense of community, togetherness, and the importance of arts and singing to help us prevail over challenging times. With the rise of alt-right politics today, the difficult themes addressed in the musical are again relevant; and it becomes a historical narrative with messages that are important to reinforce. It is this rare combination of a powerful storyline, impactful and relevant messaging that is based in history, with upbeat dance tunes and appropriate for all ages.
