Hear it here first from some of the cast and crew of Lake Zurich High School's The Sound of Music

Welcome to a story of love and labor, of notes sung and stagehands unseen. It’s not just the von Trapp family making music and standing in the lights – there's a whole Austrian Alps worth of activity behind the scenes of a high school musical. This is the grand reveal of the magic-makers, the Gretchens and Kurtzes who bring the Sound of Music to life.

B is for Backstage Choreography

Imagine a choreographed chaos where every step is timed to a breathless beat. This is the realm of the stage manager - the unsung conductor of the backstage ballet. They coordinate the movements of cast and crew with clockwork precision. Cues are whispered, not missed. Actors are shepherded from scene to scene in the dark, silent pathways of backstage. Opening the curtain is just the first scene of their performance.


A is for Audio and Visual Wonders

Lights and sound, the quiet yet unbridled heartbeats of every theatre production. Have you felt the swell of emotion under the warm wash of a spotlight? Or been swept off your feet by a perfectly timed crescendo? That's the hidden symphony of technicians and designers. They not only set the stage but control the emotional flow of the play.


C is for Costuming, the Fabric of Character

What's a high school drama without a little drama offstage? The costume department is the vibrant soul of the show, weaving threads into the very essence of every character. From a curtain to a costume to the patent leather shine of a dancing shoe, every stitch is a story, every fiber a motivation.


O is for Orchestra, the Unseen Music Makers

Beneath the stage, within the orchestral pit, a spectacular symphony await its cue. Musicians, each a maestro in their own right, ensure that the music never stops. They've practiced and performed, toiled and tuned, and now they're here to breathe life into the musical notes that float like birds on a staff across the auditorium.


N is for Never-a-Dull-Moment Props

A well-placed brass key, a dinner bell's chime, a brown paper package wrapped up in string - the props of a play do more than decorate. They are the hidden handshake of believability, the silent slips of story between set changes and scene transitions. Every item on stage tells a tale, and the prop department is its keeper.


 

The show on the stage is merely one act in a tale of many. From the builders building the sets to the sewers sewing costumes late into the night, armies of individuals pour their creativity and commitment into each performance. This isn't just a high school musical – this is a symphony of school spirit.


To all who aspire to tread the boards, paint the sets, or escort the lead, remember this: The glory of the stage is shared with every silent star behind it. And to the audience, come join us and witness the hard work and love that goes into every note and nuance. It's their pleasure to perform for you, and they eagerly wait to share the "Sound of Music" with you in April.
