There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian in this adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway classic. Based on Meredith Willson's six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth, and good old-fashioned romance.
Students will rehearse and then perform in this adaptation of the classic musical (which is also about to return to Broadway, starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster!). Performances will be at Reynolds Place Theatre in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts (251 N. Spruce St.).

THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Edelweiss,” "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is a community driven arts organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive. Going forward, we are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming — patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and students — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.
While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we and our organization (continues to) learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.
Commitment (some in place some and some in the process):
Evaluating all scripts with considerations towards inclusion and diversity within the season.
Increasing camp accessibility by providing scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.
Creating an equitable internship that includes compensation.
Seeking the recruitment, retention, and support of Black and Indigenous artists and teachers of Color.
Seeking opportunities to provide resources for students and their families to attend shows.
Working with individual directors to strive for diverse casts and design teams.
Ensuring that all directors have casting and dramaturgical resources available to them to protect and support the cultural specificity required of the work.
