With a total of 25 scenes and limited casting options, the Carmel Catholic theater department takes on the challenge of performing The Sound of Music.

Auditions for the musical included singing and script reading. For the parts of the Von Trapp children, Denise Sebastiano, head of the theater department, cast children, including her neighbor and a younger sibling of another actor.

“The kids are doing a really great job,” junior Phoebe Paslaski said. “My 8-year-old cousin Kya Lasky, whose brother is also in the play, is working with us, and she will be playing Gretl.”

The number of scenes promises to be difficult for crew members and behind-the-scenes workers, but students in the honors stagecraft class are helping out. The stagecraft class is essential, as crew members are working with a much shorter timeframe because the first show is a week earlier than it usually is.

“[The Sound of Music] is a classic,” Sebastiano said. “Everyone likes the music and everyone likes Julie Andrews. People are going to love this.”
