If you’ve ever caught yourself singing about ‘brown paper packages tied up with strings’, get ready for The Sound of Music on NBC.
From executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (“Smash,” “Hairspray,” “Chicago”) comes an instant holiday classic: “The Sound of Music,” based on the original Broadway musical. Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer star as Maria and Captain von Trapp in this beloved story of the young novice who falls in love with Captain von Trapp and his seven children, set against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Austria. The jewel in the Rodgers and Hammerstein crown, “The Sound of Music” contains some of the most famous songs ever written for the stage, including “The Sound of Music,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “Climb Every Mountain” and “Edelweiss.”
The new version of The Sound of Music will stay faithful to the original stage music while retelling the story for a whole new generation. My favorite thing about it is that they’re broadcasting it LIVE. I can’t even imagine!
I’ve been watching some of the promo videos and interviews. The cast is incredibly excited, and I can see why! I can’t wait for Emma to experience The Sound of Music for the first time.

Well while I wish we could all hang out in the living room with some pizza and popcorn, we’ll have to settle for watching at the same time. 😉 The Live broadcast of The Sound of Music will be this Thursday (December 5) at 8:00 EST / 7:00 Central on NBC.
You can also follow all the excitement on Twitter using the hashtags #FaithAndFamily and #SoundofMusic.
Disclosure: I received a promotional pack in exchange for sharing this post. All opinions – including my excitement about our daughter seeing The Sound of Music for the first time – are honest and my own.
