Leavenworth is Washington state’s Bavarian village. Leavenworth provides shopping and fun for all ages. It is also the home of Leavenworth Summer Theater. LST began in 1994, and was started by John and Susan Wagner and Bill Weis.
This summer Leavenworth Summer Theater will be producing three fantastic shows. Fiddler on the Roof at the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery Park Stage, The Drowsy Chaperone at The Festhalle Theater, and their 20th annual production of The Sound of Music at the Ski Hill Amphitheater.
The signature performance of The Sound of Music at the Ski Hill Amphitheater is a wonderful outdoor experience. Directly behind the stage is a beautiful view of the mountains in the background, creating a wonderful setting for the show. Sitting under the stars, enjoying the story of the Von Trapp family, and hearing the crickets accompany the show creates an experience like no other. It is an ideal way to end a fabulous day in Leavenworth.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Von Trapp family. It tells the story of a young postulant, Maria, who is sent by the Reverend Mother of the Nonnberg Abbey to be a governess to Captain Von Trapp’s seven children. She discovers the children don’t know how to sing, and accidentally falls in love with the Captain.
Word has gotten around about this excellent summer evening fun in Leavenworth, and the tickets sell quickly! To learn more about the theater, the experience, and how to get tickets visit the Leavenworth Summer Theater website.
