‘Sound of Music’ a hit with audiences; 10 from Sartell are part of cast

A Two Rivers Community Theatre production of “The Sound of Music” is drawing large, appreciative audiences at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School.

There are still two performances of the musical – a 7 p.m. show Friday, Aug. 2 and a 2 p.m. matinee Saturday, Aug. 3.

The cast of dozens of people include 10 from the Sartell area: Bret Burggraff, Ana Deal-Hansen, Alex Fritzke, Brandon Morine, Maureen and Stephanie Otremba, Tyler Raehsler, Hannah and John Ronyak and Hayley Spalding.

Perhaps the most beloved musical show of all time, “The Sound of Music” was a Broadway smash in the 1960s and then became a hugely popular Oscar-winning movie starring Julie Andrews. Its popular songs include “The Sound of Music,” “Edelweiss, “I am 16 Going on 17,” “Climb Every Mountain” and “Do-Re-Me.”

Two Rivers Community Theatre is part of the Sauk Rapids-Rice Community Education program.
