To see the show, tune in on Thursday, December 5 at 8pm eastern/7pm central. It will be on your local NBC station. Great news--everyone can see it. You don't have to be on a certain cable company to be able to see this.
I'm already humming "Edelweiss, edelwiss. Every morning you greet me..." I am really excited to share The Sound of Music with my children. We've seen it in the theatre, but I look forward to sharing this live production with them on TV (their preferred medium). Be sure to join me as I'll be tweeting during the show. Let me know what you think (be sure to join the fun by tweeting using #SoundofMusic and #faithandfamily).
From the producers:
THE SOUND OF MUSICFrom 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."
This new version of "The Sound of Music" will be a faithful adaptation of the original stage musical, to retell the story for a whole new generation. And more than that, it will be broadcast LIVE, adding a whole new level of immediacy and excitement. Get ready to reintroduce your family to the most joyful, most emotional and most musical family adventure of them all.
