"The hills are alive with the sound of music, with songs they have sung for a thousand years. The hills fill my heart with the sound of music. My heart wants to sing every song it hears."
A vibrant, boiled down unearthing of the 1958 classic The Sound of Music directed by P45's Artistic Director, Kit McKay. More than 60 years after The Sound of Music blazed onto the American stage, this intimate production offers the opportunity to experience Rodgers and Hammerstein’s unabashedly romantic masterpiece as though for the first time. Parallel 45’s timely approach to the story you know and love asks that we watch with fresh eyes as a broken family heals itself in order to stand against the forces of evil as a unified front.
Our Seating Plan
This summer’s new seating allows our audience to sit in the open air of the lawn at our P45 Amphitheatre. Our Premium Front Row Seating option will get you a provided and comfortable seat in the front row. All other tickets are General Lawn Seating where you can sit with your friends and family in a predetermined row and safely socially-distanced from others. Patrons will need to bring their own seating and stadium chairs, lawn chairs and blankets are suggested. To make sure everyone has a positive and clear viewing experience, please do not bring any oversized or tall-back chairs or umbrellas. Seating on the lawn will be handled on a first come, first served basis, and will take into account sightlines and comfort level of audience members. Shaded areas will be designated for those in need. Contact us at [email protected] with any additional questions.
Inclement Weather Policy
If inclement weather poses a safety concern, the decision to cancel a performance will be made up to 90 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. If a show is cancelled, you will receive an email notification. In the event of a cancellation, P45 Theatre will automatically contact you about show options or refunds.
Safety at P45
P45 Theatre respectfully follows all CDC and public health guidelines. Michigan currently does not require the use of face masks outdoors, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, so the use of masks when seated will be up to each audience member. We do promote and ask guests to wear face masks when being seated by our volunteer ushers, or standing in line for services.
