Creative Arts Department Presents The Sound of Music


The Southwestern Christian University Creative Arts Department will present The Sound of Music on Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th at 7:00pm for their spring musical production. Tickets are $10 for Adults, $8 for seniors age 55 and older, $5 for non-SCU students (SCU students with ID- FREE), children 12 and under are FREE. The production will be held in the Minchew Auditorium on SCU’s campus at 7210 NW 39th Expressway in Bethany, Oklahoma.

The Sound of Music is an enchanting story set in 1930’s Austria. The story follows a free-spirited woman named Maria—played by Madeline Lafferty—who is failing miserably at becoming a nun. After Captain Von Trapp—the militant father of seven unruly children—writes to the convent requesting a governess, Maria is assigned to the impossible task. 

Jared Bishop, a graduate of Southwestern Christian University, will play Captain Von Trapp. Maria wins the children over by her loving heart, understanding, and sense of fun and brings joy to the whole family—including the uptight Captain Von Trapp. The Von Trapp children are cast as follows: Liesl played by Kara Young; Friedrich played by Austin Ray; Louisa played by Jennie Burchette; Kurt played by Benjamin Allen; Brigitta played by Addison Ray; Marta played by Sydney Sheilds; and Gretl played by Brianna Butler. 

This is a production of The Sound of Music that you won’t want to miss!
