Thanks to my third-grade music teacher, I already know all of the lyrics to The Sound of Music, and I can’t wait to sing along under the stars at Starlight Theatre! Starlight will spin the magical tale of Maria and the Von Trapp family as Maria brings laughter and music back into the lives of these special children.
The shows begin at 8pm, so I’ll be taking advantage of a pre-show Starlight Tour to get the kids geared up for the show. Arrive early and get a free, behind-the-scenes look at Starlight. Tours begin before each performance at 6:30pm, 6:45pm & 7pm. Report to the top of the theatre behind Terrace Section 1 to begin the tour.
There will also be pre-show performances on the Spotlight Stage, featuring some of Kansas City’s finest local talent, including the Starlight STARS, before each night’s production. The Spotlight Stage is located just inside Gate 4 on the northwest side of the theatre.
The Sound of Music runs July 25-31, 2014, 8pm. Tickets start at $12, and one of our favorite tricks to keep the kids occupied is to bring binoculars so they can see better. Need a booster seat? A limited supply of complimentary booster seats are available at the Ovation gift store. After the show, you can drop off the seats at any gate, guest relations table or the Ovation gift store.
The show is suitable for all ages. I hope you too enjoy singing along to My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, and Climb Ev’ry Mountain!
