JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Johnsonburg High School is producing "The Sound of Music" for the upcoming weekendâ€™s festivities. Show times will be Friday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 10 at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Ginger Schreiber, Drama Club Advisor says this yearâ€™s production has 10 percent of the student body.
â€śIt seems like more and more kids come out every year,â€ť Schreiber said. â€śThis year we have 34 children, and there are only 340 kids in the whole school.â€ť
Singing, dancing and action wonâ€™t fall short this year.
â€śThis production has 100 minutes of singing; the singing outweighs the speaking parts,â€ť Schreiber said. â€śThe stage is totally different because we have three places where action moves into. There is only a two minute lapse in the whole show where there is no action.â€ť
Twelve years ago Schreiber produced "The Sound of Music," but decided to visit the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic again.
â€śI have double the cast I did 12 years ago,â€ť Schreiber said. â€śThe kids wanted to do something well-known, and this year is the 45th anniversary of 'The Sound of Music.'â€ť
