THE SOUND OF MUSIC

DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, DURHAM

TUESDAY, DEC. 1–SUNDAY, DEC. 6

The story could come from today's newspaper: A large family of refugees—a mother, father and seven children—are on the run, barely one step ahead of the murderous totalitarians in pursuit. Between the family and safety lies an impenetrable natural barrier. But the dateline is 1938, not 2015, and the family is European, not Syrian. Their last name is now famous: von Trapp. The Sound of Music, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's final collaboration, went on to becomes one of the American Film Institute's all-time top five movie musicals. A rarity distinguishes this national touring production, which launched in September: Kerstin Anderson, who plays Maria, was a New York college sophomore when she was cast, with no credits on Broadway (or off- or off-off-Broadway, for that matter). Now she works alongside Tony Award winner Ben Davis and Ashley Brown, who played Broadway's Mary Poppins. 7:30 p.m. Tues.Thurs.; 8 p.m. Fri.Sat.; 2 p.m. Sat.; 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sun., 123 Vivian St., Durham,
