According to Luke Foster Hayden, Director the last time the BNLHS students put on this timeless classic was back in 2002.
" What really drew me to the show was the vocal talent at Bedford North Lawrence High School. Maybe I am biased, but I think that we have the most talented young singers in this program, and I chose this show for them," said Hayden.
The audience would have to agree with his statement with all the singers, able to reach the notes to perfection, along with the live orchestra making the production of this musical one of the best seen performances in a long time put on by the high school students.
What " The Sound of Music lacks in edge and spectacle makes up for with the sheer beauty of its music.

The Lawrence County Zephyr concludes all of the performers will be going places in the future, you may even see some as professional actors on the screen in Hollywood as they performed quite well during the almost three-hour performance.
The Sound of Music is based on "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria von Trapp.
The Story of the Trapp Family Singers is a 1949 memoir written by Maria Von Trapp, whose life was fictionalized in Rogers and Hammerstein's Broadway production in 1959.
The book itself was published in 1949, with the book describing the life of von Trapp family from the beginnings in Salzburg, Austria, to their adventures in America where they escaped from Nazi - invaded Europe.
