Des Moines Community Playhouse will be filled with “The Sound of Music” over the next few weeks. The classic musical, which will run Dec. 3 to Dec. 19, is based on the true story of a young woman sent to take care of seven children of a retired naval captain, all set in Austria just prior to World War II. Favorite songs include “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
Showtimes run throughout the next few weekends, with four midweek performances on Thursday, Dec. 9; Monday, Dec. 13; Tuesday, Dec. 14; and Thursday, Dec. 16. “The Sound of Music” isn’t a part of the Playhouse’s season package, but members get discounted prices. Tickets start at $47. There will also be live online viewing options. Masks are required to attend.
