While the Captain and Maria’s story is one of attraction, The Sound of Music is a show free of innuendo or inference to sexual matters.


Champagne is seemingly served at a party to the adult guests. Drunkenness is never depicted and there are no other references to drugs or alcohol. There is no “off-color” language in The Sound of Music.


1938 was a scary time in Europe. This very real and factually based story of the Nazi occupation of Austria permeates Act II. Actors dressed as Nazi soldiers appear at the concert scene and in the dark scene that follows. This and the music and sound effects played for a short stint could be scary to young children. A gun is brandished in the same scene, and there are a few incidences of actors being slapped, but there is no other overt violence in the show.
